The One True Body of Christ That will Be Raptured Soon

Are All Part of the 144,000 That Christ Revealed to John

That He Has Saved Out of This World

February 7, 2019

The Awesome Book of Revelation REVEALS that the number of 144,000 who John saw in his 2nd vision recorded in Revelation 7:1-4 and his 4th vision recorded in Revelation 14:1-5 is “a God ordained number” that Christ used to paint a CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL PICTURE of THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST that has been redeemed out of this World’s population.  And to fully understand what this “God ordained number” represents -- one needs to believe what Christ REVEALED to Zechariah over 2500 years ago -- that Christ has only chosen to save a REMNANT 1/3 of this World’s population at any time in Human History.  And that 1/3 Remnant was chosen to be saved by Christ before the foundation of the World when we read:

“And it shall come to pass in all the land,” says the Lord, “That two-thirds in it shall be cut off and die, but one-third shall be left in it: I will bring the one-third through the fire, (and I) will refine them as silver is refined, and test them as gold is tested.  They will call on My name, and I will answer them.
I will say, ‘This is My people’; and each one will say, ‘The Lord is my God.’ ”
  (Zechariah 13:8-9)

CLEARLY -- the True Gospel of Christ teaches that Christ began saving this “Elect” 1/3 Remnant that He REVEALED to Zechariah that He had chosen to save out of the Human Race with Noah and his family.  And from Noah’s Day the Deliverance of the 1/3 Remnant continued when Christ REVEALED to Abraham that a small Remnant of the Hebrew people in his day would be saved.  But Christ REVEALED to Abraham that NOT only would just a Remnant be saved then which included Lot and his daughters -- but that Abraham would be “the Father of MANY Nations” and that His descendants would be as numerous as the Stars in Heaven.  And clearly -- what Christ was prophesying to Abraham has today been fulfilled.  For now the 1/3 Remnant includes both the Old Testament Remnant saved before the Cross and also a remnant of us that have now been saved in the New Testaments Days after the Cross that now adds up to BILLIONS of people out of this World that Christ has chosen to save.  And we can now understand that Christ’s prophecy has become a reality when the 1/3 Remnant resembles “the very stars of Heaven” and has become such a large and Glorious number that no one can even count all those saved since Abraham’s Day!!! 

And clearly -- we can understand that THE TRUTH of  the Gospel of the Kingdom of Heaven is that THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST has now been saved by “the Messiah the Prince” who CAME  to save those He chose to save before the foundation of the World.  And that ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST includes both Old and New Testament Saints and Jews and Gentiles from every Nation on Earth in order to fulfill the prophecy that Christ REVEALED to Abraham that he would be “the Father of MANY Nations” and that his descendants would be as numerous as “the stars of Heaven.”  And those “stars of Heaven” have been given the “God ordained number” of  144,000 by Christ Himself as He REVEALED to John in his visions.

But in order to understand THE TRUTH about “the God ordained number” of 144,000 that Christ REVEALED to John that would eventually be saved -- it is extremely important for us born-again Christians living today in this 21st Century with the 2nd Coming and THE RAPTURE so very near to understand that according to the True Gospel of Christ that Christ Himself prophesied that His Salvation Program would be fulfilled in the 1st Period of the 70th Week Prophecy given to Daniel.  And clearly – this 1st Period of Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy has been fulfilled with the last over 2,000 years now of Church Outreach and the Great Commission.  And that is has been during this time of Church Outreach that Christ had Daniel prophesy that He would come as “the Messiah the Prince” to finish building His True Eternal Universal Church on Earth and to confirm His New Covenant of Grace with “the many” of us in His Book of Life. 

It just can’t be reiterated enough that Christ wanted us True Prophets of His to know that the 1/3 Remnant that He REVEALED to Zechariah that would be redeemed by Him out of this Human Race were given “the God ordained number” of 144,000 which is WHY He gave John his 2 visions of the 144,000 in Heaven.  But sadly -- so many have been DECEIVED by Satan about what this God ordained number represents which is the reason for my writing this Commentary for Christ!!!

CLEARLY -- if one believes in the True Gospel of Christ – then one has to believe that Christ REVEALED to John in his 2 visions of the 144,000 that this “God ordained number” represents all of the 1/3 Remnant that have now been born on Earth and are now “sealed” with Christ’s Holy Spirit and invisibly marked by Christ with the Blood of the Lamb.  And one also has to believe that we are TODAY living at the END of Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy because the 1st Period of Church Outreach has now been fulfilled with all of the Nations having been evangelized.  And clearly – now the 2nd Period has reached its time of fruition also. 

Christ’s True Gospel REVEALS that this 2nd Period of Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy that we are living in today will soon END with Christ Returning to deliver those of us who are part of the 144,000 that He has redeemed out of this World at His 2nd Coming and THE RAPTURE which will also be the CULMINATION of His Millennial Kingdom on Earth – NOT the beginning of it!!!

In this Commentary I will attempt to outline how Satan has DECEIVED so many about “the God ordained number” of 144,000 which is an extremely important concept to understand if one cares about THE CAUSE OF CHRIST in not only saving the 1/3 Remnant out of this World that He REVEALED to Zechariah would be saved – but also in DEFEATING SATAN and his LIES and Doctrines of Demons about these End-Times which clearly includes the number 144,000!!!

One Can Never Understand The True Gospel of Christ

Unless They  Understand From Christ’s True Eschatology Who the 144,000 Are

HONESTLY – the True Gospel of Christ can NEVER be understood without knowing and BELIEVING that Christ only chose to save a REMNANT of 1/3 of this World’s population before He even created the Human Race just as He REVEALED to Zechariah so many thousands of years ago now.  And as He REVEALED to Daniel in his 70th Week Prophecy -- His DIVINE PLAN entailed His coming to Earth as “The Messiah the Prince” recorded in Daniel 9:27 to redeem that 1/3 Remnant that He had chosen to save by His shed Blood.  In other words -- only those IN CHRIST who are part of the 1/3 Remnant that Christ REVEALED to Zechariah that He has been bringing through the trials and tribulations of this World to deliver soon to the New Heavens and the New Earth at His 2nd Coming – can even be counted as part of the 144,000.  And clearly -- the 144,000 are those of us that Christ REVEALED to John who are part of THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST that will be RAPTURED on the LAST DAY at His 2nd Coming. 

And it goes without saying that the 2/3 of the population of this World that Christ REVEALED to Zechariah that would NOT be saved -- will continue to be AT WAR and rebellion against Christ and those of us in the 1/3 Remnant that He chose to save right up until the LAST DAY of this Present Age of Humanity.  That TRUTH is confirmed in both Daniel and John’s visions to be sure!!!

And as Christ REVEALED to John in his 2 visions recorded in Revelation 7:1-4 and Revelation 14:1-5 – this “Elect” 1/3 Remnant of the Human Race that have been given “the God ordained number” of 144,000 must all have been born on Earth and “sealed” with the Holy Spirit and THE MARK OF SALVATION -- which is “the Blood of the Lamb” invisibly written on our foreheads -- BEFORE Christ would LOOSE Satan to fight the Final Spiritual Battle.  In other words Christ REVEALED to both Daniel and John in their visions that SATAN was “the little horn” that would be “THE ANTICHRIST” who would rise to power in his last 4th Empire on Earth to unite the 2/3 Remnant of the World’s population to wage the FINAL SPIRITUAL BATTLE against Christ and us 1/3 Remnant who are saved that we see happening around the Globe TODAY!!! 

And CLEARLY – part of the 144,000 which is “the God ordained number” that Christ had John use to represent the 1/3 Remnant of this World that He has redeemed -- are those of us Born-again Christians living on Earth today who are now engaged in the Final Spiritual Battle of GOOD AND EVIL and TRUTH AND LIES which is causing this time of GREAT TRIBULATION for all of us who are Pro-Christ and ANTI-SATAN!!!

HONESTLY -- one of the most important messages of John’s 7 visions of these End-Times -- is that Christ REVEALED to John that those who are part of THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST make up the 144,000 redeemed who have been indwelled with Christ’s Holy Spirit and will be the only ones living on Earth before the 2nd Coming of Christ who will endure this time of Great Tribulation now that Satan has been LOOSED to DECEIVE the Nations.  But HONESTLY -- one has to hand it to SATAN – for he is doing a pretty good job of deceiving the Nations today!!!  For even most Professed Christians now believe SATAN’S LIES about who the 144,000 are which has resulted in almost ALL of Christendom not even realizing that we are even in the Time of Great Tribulation that Christ prophesied those of us who are part of the redeemed 144,000 would be going through!!!  THINK ABOUT IT!!!   

The Cause of Christ has Always Been to Redeem the 144,000

CLEARLY – THE CAUSE OF CHRIST from Noah’s Day until TODAY has been to restore a Remnant in the Nation of Israel to God and to bring the Light of the Gospel Message of the Kingdom of Heaven to a Remnant of Gentiles in all the Nations of the World by reconciling both Jews and Gentiles together into THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST.  And clearly -- John saw that the 144,000 that was the 1/3 Remnant that Christ REVEALED to Zechariah that would be saved – all saved and “sealed” with the Name of Christ written on our foreheads standing with Christ in His Kingdom after being redeemed.

But sadly -- what is never taught today is that the 144,000 that John saw that Christ had redeemed CLEARLY includes those of us Born-again Christians living on Earth now in this 21st Century.  This is an extremely important TRUTH to realize if one wants to understand the times in which we are living today!!!  For Christ REVEALED to John that ALL those in His Book of Life had to be saved and “sealed” by Him before Satan is LOOSED as “THE ANTICHRIST” in his 4th and Final Kingdom to fight the Final Spiritual Battle that MUST OCCUR before Christ’s 2nd Coming to RAPTURE US – THINK ABOUT IT!!! 

And the reason WHY we Born-again Christians all have to be saved and “sealed” by Christ with His MARK OF SALVATION – is so that we won’t be DECEIVED by the “strong delusions” of Satan’s LIES and False Gospels which include the False Eschatology of Man of where we are today on Christ’s Prophetic Timeline.  HONESTLY – it is because Satan is such a Master of Deceivers that he has deceived even so many Professed Christians to believe in Man’s False Eschatology that the Church will not even be IN the Great Tribulation that Christ Himself prophesied we “Elect” would be going through. 

CLEARLY – what both Daniel and John saw in their visions is that this Final Spiritual Battle of today involves Satan and his Army of False Prophets “DECEIVING THE NATIONS.”  And those visions have NOW today become a reality.  For Christ REVEALED to Daniel that “the legs of iron with feet partly of iron and partly of clay” – in the statue of SATAN REVEALED in King Nebuchadnezzar’s dream -- was a CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL PICTURE of the Final 4thKingdom of Satan that we are living in TODAY!!!  And Christ was giving us this CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL PICTURE of  “the iron” mixing with “the clay” to REVEAL to us that the SPIRITUAL WARFARE that we would be involved in would be INTENSE to say the least because it would involve DEMONS!!! 

In other words -- Christ REVEALED to both Daniel and John that Satan would use DEMONS to mix with the unsaved in his Kingdom of “Babylon the Great” to accelerate the wickedness that we now see spreading around the Globe today like Wildfire.  And CLEARLY -- John was shown that in Satan’s rise to power in the External Global Harlot Church that he would have the power as the Supreme Antichrist over most of the APOSTATE Congregations of the Harlot Church to ensure that they adopted the False Eschatology of Man.  And that Satan would use his False Prophets to deceive most of Christendom with this False Eschatology of Man when in reality it would end up being nothing more than “crafty distortions” of THE TRUTH!!

And so we come to the Final Spiritual Battle of TRUTH AND LIES that Christ REVEALED to John in his 7th vision recorded in Revelation Chapter 20 that MUST OCCUR before His 2nd Coming to Rapture us.  And clearly – that Final Spiritual Battle includes Satan who is given the CRYPTIC NAME of “Gog” – and his Army of False Prophets -- who are given the CRYPTIC NAME of “Magog.”  And Christ REVEALED to John that this vast Army of Satan would be LOOSED to deceive those who have NOT been “sealed by Christ” with THE MARK OF SALVATION -- but have instead been sealed by Christ with unsaved Mankind’s number which is THE MARK OF THE BEAST!!! 

And clearly – it is those who have “THE MARK OF THE BEAST” that John saw would be BLINDED to THE TRUTH of these End-Times – which is just where we are TODAY on Christ’s Prophetic Timeline – THINK ABOUT IT!!!  For aren’t we seeing the masses so deceived by THE LIES of Satan’s False Prophets that most of them wouldn’t know THE TRUTH even if it hit them over the head???!!!

And rest assured this tremendous ENMITY between the 2/3 of the World’s population in the Kingdom of Satan who are NOT SAVED against those of us 1/3 of the World’s population that have now been saved and “sealed” by Christ in His Kingdom of Heaven -- will NOT get any better until Christ sounds the 7th Last Trumpet and Returns to Deliver and RAPTURE those of us who are part of the redeemed 144,000 on the LAST DAY!!!  

We Can Today See “The Abomination of Desolation”

That Christ Prophesied Would Be The #1 Sign of His Return

HONESTLY -- in order to understand where we are today on Christ’s Prophetic Timeline – one needs to understand THE TRUTH from God’s Word.  And that TRUTH is that Christ gave John a CRYPTIC PICTURE of the Final Spiritual Battle that MUST OCCUR BEFORE Christ would come back to deliver us who are part of the 144,000 redeemed.  And clearly -- that Final Spiritual Battle is called by the CRYPTIC NAME of “Armageddon” and “The Gog and Magog Battle.”  

This Final Battle that Christ gave John a vision of was NOT a Military Battle – but a CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL PICTURE of the SPIRITUAL WARFARE that ALL the Nations of this World would be involved in at the time of Christ’s 2nd Coming.  For Christ REVEALED to John that Satan and his False Prophets would be DECEIVING ALL the Nations of the World at the same time.  And that this “strong delusion” of the End-Times would cause a time of Great Tribulation for those of us True Prophets of Christ who are standing up for His True Eschatology and Word about where we are on His Prophetic Timeline of TODAY.  That we are RIGHT NOW TODAY going through the prophesied time of GREAT TRIBULATION that Christ prophesied MUST OCCUR before His Return.  

For clearly – Christ REVEALED to both Daniel and John that a Final Spiritual Battle would take place BEFORE His 2nd Coming and that we “Elect” who John saw were part of the 144,000 redeemed would be IN IT!!!  And the reason WHY Christ had John describe the Final Spiritual Battle in HIGHLY CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL LANGUAGE giving it the CRYPTIC NAME of “Armageddon” and “Gog and Magog” is just what He REVEALED to Paul also – which is that all those who REFUSED to believe THE TRUTH of Christ’s True Eschatology will be DAMNED by Christ pouring out the 5th and 6th Bowl Judgment on them which is SPIRITUAL BLINDNESS!!!  For Paul wrote from the Lord recorded in 2nd Thessalonians 2 that  all those who REFUSE to believe Christ’s True Eschatology would buy into Satan’s “strong delusions” and will be DAMNED!!!    

And today we True Prophets of Christ can see with our own eyes the prophesied “Abomination that will lead to the DESOLATION of many” that Christ Himself prophesied would be a SIGN of His 2nd Coming.  For He prophesied that Satan would be leading even Professed Christians to be AT WAR with Him and His Word that we are even in this time now of Great Tribulation – deceiving them to believe A LIE about who the 144,000 represent!!!

Sadly – Satan has now been able to convince most of Christendom that the New Testament Church will be RAPTURED before the Great Tribulation even begins.  But make no mistake -- Christ explicitly REVEALED to John that the Final Battle before the 2nd Coming of Christ would NOT be a Physical Military Battle that will be fought over the LITERAL LAND of Jerusalem in the Middle East – even though that land has been a place of intense warfare for centuries now – but that it is a SPIRITUAL BATTLE being fought between those of us saved souls in the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem” that are under the Leadership of CHRIST -- and the unsaved souls in the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Babylon the Great” who are in League with SATAN.

Proof  That Christ Has Today Already Poured out the 5th and 6th Bowl Judgments

CLEARLY – if one understands the True Eschatology of Christ -- then they can see that there is an overwhelming amount of evidence that demands a verdict that Christ has today ALREADY poured out of the 5th and 6th Bowl Judgments.  And that these Judgments have resulted in the SPIRITUAL BLINDING of Satan’s False Prophets who are the 2/3 Remnant of the unsaved souls in the Kingdom of Satan who Paul wrote in 2nd Thessalonians 2 are the SONS OF PERDITION and represent “The Man of Sin.”  For clearly – Christ had Paul prophesy that these MEN OF SIN would REFUSE to believe THE TRUTH of Christ’s Word about these End-Times.  And to paraphrase what Paul prophesied from the Lord recorded in 2nd Thessalonians 2:3-4 they will:“oppose and exalt themselves above all that is called God or that is worshipped so that they as God sit in the Temple of God -- showing themselves that THEY ARE GOD”!!!

And AGAIN -- isn’t that what we see happening today???!!!  That this Society of Narcissistic Men and Women have come to believe that they and the Governments that they believe in who are ruled over in the United Nations by Satan today -- ARE GOD.  That they can and certainly WILL do as they please even it it means killing their own babies in and outside of the womb right after they are delivered???!!!

CLEARLY – the Last Generation that Christ had Paul prophecy about is this NARCISISTIC SOCIETY that we are living in today where “THE MAN OF SIN” is sitting in the Temple of God ruling himself as if HE WERE GOD!!!  And “THE MAN OF SIN” clearly defines the 2/3 of the population of the World today who are NOT “sealed” and saved like the “God ordained number of 144,000” that Christ REVEALED to John who are the 1/3 Remnant of this World’s population that He has now “sealed” with The Blood of the Lamb. 

What we are seeing happening today is “THE MAN OF SIN” coming against “THE MAN OF GOD” when Christ clearly had Paul prophesy these words of wisdom for those of us going through this Final Spiritual Battle of GOOD AND EVIL with Satan and THE MEN OF SIN in League with him when Christ has Paul advise us: But you, O Man of God, flee these things and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, gentleness.” (1st Timothy 6:11)  And in Ephesians 5:11 we also read Paul writing from the Lord that we who are MEN AND WOMEN OF GOD should: “Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of DARKNESS, but rather EXPOSE THEM.”

HONESTLY – it is because this World has become just like the Antediluvian Godless Narcissistic Society in the Days of Noah and Lot – that Christ has NOW taken His restraint off of Satan and LOOSED him and his Demonic Army to fight this Final Spiritual Battle that will NOT END WELL for Satan and his Army of unsaved False Prophets.   For JUDGMENT has clearly been poured out on Satan and his Army of False Prophets that Christ had John call by the CRYPTIC NAME of “Magog” – in the NOW pouring out of the 5th and 6th Bowl Judgments.  And make no mistake -- the 9th and 10th Plagues poured out on Pharaoh’s Kingdom which ended in DEATH -- only foreshadow the 5th and 6th Bowl Judgments that have been poured out today!!! 

For CLEARLY these Judgments have been poured out on the Throne of Satan and his Kingdom of “Babylon the Great” to BLIND those who are in League with Satan in his Kingdom so that they all might be DAMNED who REFUSE to believe THE TRUTH of God’s Word about the Kingdom of Heaven and those of us who are part of the 144,000 in it that are standing up for THE TRUTH of God’s Word.

And Christ had Paul prophesy about this Narcissistic Antediluvian 21st Century Society of TODAY – that those who exalt themselves as GOD will all be DAMNED by Christ ALLOWING them to be deceived by Satan’s “strong delusions.”   The ones that Paul referred to who oppose Christ and sit in His Temple showing themselves to BE GOD – are the ones that are “THE MEN OF SIN” who are in League with Satan.  And Paul prophesied that “THE MAN OF SIN” that is represented in the Prophecy that Christ gave him of this Last Terminal Generation makes up 2/3 of the World’s population according to what Christ REVEALED to Zechariah who would be in League with Satan.  And in these verses we read that Christ LOOSES Satan so that ALL “THE MEN OF SIN” in League with Satan will be DECEIVED and therefore DAMNED into Hell right along with Satan and his Army of 200 MILLION DEMONS when we read:

“Even him, (referring to THE MAN OF SIN!!! – NOT the Man of God!!!) whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, and with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received NOT the love of THE TRUTH (of God’s Word!!!), that they might be saved.   And for this cause God shall send them STRONG DELUSION, that they should believe A LIE: that they all might be DAMNED who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.” (2ndThess. 2:9-12)

These MEN OF SIN spoken of here are part of the VAST ARMY of 2/3 of the unsaved Remnant that Satan has always had at his disposal to do his evil bidding at anytime in Human History.  But now in this time of Great Tribulation Paul is prophesying from Christ that it is a time when Christ has given that His Word NOT be unto Salvation any longer – but unto JUDGMENT!!!  In other words – both Paul and John prophesied from the Lord that SATAN would be LOOSED to sit in the Harlot Church as “THE ANTICHRIST” after ALL of those in Christ’s Book of Life had been born on Earth to be saved and “sealed” by Christ which is where we are TODAY on Christ’s Prophetic Timeline – fighting this Final Spiritual Battle which gets more fierce with each passing day.

There Are No More Generations After The 5th and 6th Plagues are Poured Out!!!

Paul prophesied from the Lord that when the DAY of “THE LAWLESS MAN” came with the LOOSING of Satan to sit in the Harlot Church as “THE ANTICHRIST” -- it would mean that there would be no more Future Generations coming forth.  For Paul clearly prophesied that after Christ had LOOSED Satan as His instrument of Judgment to DECEIVE and BLIND those with his STRONG DELUSIONS and lies -- that those who REFUSED to believe the Truth of Christ’s Word would all be DAMNED.  And this EVIL GENERATION of Satan will then be cast into Hell at the END of the Final Spiritual Battle of today!!!

CLEARLY -- only those of us who are part of the 144,000 redeemed who have been “sealed” by Christ’s Holy Spirit and have invisibly been marked by Christ with “The Blood of the Lamb” will survive the STRONG DELUSIONS and DECEPTIONS of Satan and his Demons.  For John saw that “Armageddon” and “The Gog and Magog Battle” is a Final Spiritual Battle of GOOD AND EVIL and TRUTH AND LIES and that only those “sealed” by Christ will NOT to be BLINDED by Satan but will come out unscathed and will make it to the 1,335th LAST DAY of this Great Tribulation.  And clearly -- Christ REVEALED to Daniel that we who are part of the 144,000 redeemed would be “Blessed” if we made it to this LAST DAY because we would witness His 2nd Coming!!!

And clearly -- it needs to be understood today that SPIRITUAL BLINDNESS is represented by the 5th Angel in the awesome Book of Revelation that Christ gives the Command to Blow his Trumpet and then to pour out his Bowl Judgment on the unfaithful who REFUSE to believe THE TRUTHS of Christ’s Word.  And the command is that the 5th Bowl Judgment be poured out on THE THRONE OF THE BEAST who is “the Dragon” or SATAN!!!  And John clearly saw that when the 5th Bowl Judgment was poured out that it plunged Satan’s Kingdom of “Babylon the Great” into a SPIRITUAL DARKNESS much like the 9thPlague of Moses’ Day which Christ poured out at that time on Pharaoh and his Evil Egyptian Empire. 

The 9th Plague of Darkness was a LITERAL time of total darkness that covered the whole Land of Egypt which lasted for 3 days and nights.  And that Plague of Darkness foreshadows this time today of “Darkness” caused by the pouring out of the 5th and 6th Plagues.  Only the darkness today is a SPIRITUAL DARKNESS and BLINDNESS that Christ had Daniel prophesy will last the whole 2nd Period of Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy with Satan as “THE ANTICHRIST” in power to reign in the Harlot Church and over all the Nations today in the United Nations!!!

And while Daniel was shown that Satan would rise as “the little horn” or “THE ANTICHRIST” during this 2nd Period of the 70th Week Prophecy -- John was shown that right on the heels of the 5th Angel pouring out his 5th Bowl Judgment that then Christ instructs the 6th Angel with the 6th Bowl Judgment to pour out his Bowl Judgment on Satan’s Kingdom of False Prophets.  And they are immediately deceived by Satan to join him and his Army of 200 MILLION DEMONS in the Final Spiritual Battle that is going on right now which is MAN AT WAR with Christ and His Word.  John CLEARLY hears Christ saying to the 6th Angel which had the 6th Trumpet that he was to LOOSE the 4 Angels which have been bound at the Great River Euphrates until THIS proper time of Great Tribulation that would begin the Final Spiritual Battle of today when we read:

“Then the sixth angel sounded: And I heard a voice from the four horns of the Golden Altar which is before God, saying to the sixth Angel who had the Trumpet, “Release the four Angels who are bound at the Great River Euphrates.”  So the four Angels, who had been prepared for the hour and day and month and year, were released to kill a third of mankind.   Now the number of the Army of the horsemen was two hundred MILLION; I heard the number of them.” (and we know that Christ REVEALED that this is Satan’s Demonic Army released with him from HELL!!!)  (Revelation 9:13-16)

CLEARLY – Christ REVEALED to John in his 3rd vision recorded in Revelation 9 above that this is the time of Great Tribulation when Satan and his Army of 200 MILLION DEMONS have been LOOSED to fight today’s Final Spiritual Battle when Christ prophesied:  And unless those days were shortened, NO flesh would be saved; but for the Elect’s sake those days will be shortened.” (Matthew 24:22)  

And what Christ was trying to convey to us True Prophets of His who are the “Elect” and part of the redeemed 144,000 that are NOW going through this time of GREAT TRIBULATION with the Final Spiritual Battle raging all around the Globe -- is that Christ has shortened these Days of Great Tribulation for us so that Satan will NOT deceive us with his LIES and Doctrines of Demons.  But while John saw that those of us who were part of the 144,000 redeemed were “sealed” and would NOT be deceived – the 2/3 Remnant who were NOT SAVED would be so GREATLY DECEIVED that there will be tremendous PANDEMIC DELUSION AND CONFUSION prevailing around the Globe.  And it just can’t be reiterated enough -- that this is EXACTLY what we are seeing now with even Professed Christians not being able to explain fully what is going on because they have bought into MAN’S FALSE ESCHATOLOGY???!!! 

But we True Prophets of Christ SHOULD know what is going on – for Christ REVEALED to John that SATAN would DECEIVE 2/3 of the unsaved World’s population to MAKE WAR with Him and us “Elect” who are the 1/3 Remnant or a “third of mankind” that John wrote in his 3rd vision that Satan’s Army are AT WAR WITH.  In other words -- it is the 1/3 Remnant or part of the 144,000 that Christ has redeemed that John saw were those to be “killed and silenced” as John wrote and we read recorded in Revelation 9:13-16.  At least that is the Plan of Satan in today’s Final Spiritual Battle -- to “kill and silence” the testimony of us 1/3 Remnant who Christ has now saved.  And if he can’t “kill and silence” us LITERALLY by physically killing us – rest assured that Satan will do his best to at least neutralize the witness of Christians everywhere by killing our testimony – THINK ABOUT IT!!!!!!

THE TRUTH is Blatantly clear – for John saw that Satan and his VAST ARMY of the 2/3 of the World’s population could NOT MAKE WAR with Christ and us True Prophets of Christ who are part of the 144,000 redeemed in this Final Spiritual Battle -- UNLESS Christ allowed it to happen!!!  Just THINK ABOUT THAT for a moment – Christ is allowing this Final Spiritual Battle to happen because this Final Battle MUST OCCUR in order for Christ to Rapture us.  For we who are part of the 144,000 redeemed can NOT receive our immortal bodies like Christ unless Christ gives Satan the power to MAKE WAR with Him and us “Elect” when we read:

“It was granted to him (SATAN!!!!) to MAKE WAR with the saints and to overcome them.  And authority was given him (SATAN – NOT One Particular Man in the Future who will rule the whole world as “THE ANTICHRIST” – but SATAN who has ruled the unsaved of this World since the Garden of Eden!!!) over every tribe, tongue, and Nation.  All who dwell on the Earth (who are NOT part of the 144,000 redeemed and are NOT sealed by Christ!!!) will worship him, (SATAN!!!) whose names have NOT been written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.” (Rev. 13:7-8)

These verses explain WHY Satan had to be bound at the Cross – for it was clearly so that this PANDEMIC DECEPTION would NOT occur until everyone in Christ’s Book of Life had been born on Earth and the 144,000 which John saw in his 2nd and 4th visions had been saved and “sealed” so that Satan could be LOOSED at “the proper time” which is NOW that the whole world has been evangelized!!!  In other words – Satan could NOT deceive the Nations like he is doing TODAY now that Christ has obviously LOOSED him -- until we were close to the 2nd Coming of Christ and IN THE FINAL SPRIRITUAL BATTLE which is causing today’s Great Tribulation.  AGAIN – one needs to THINK ABOUT IT – for it REVEALS just how close to Christ’s 2nd Coming that we are today!!!  

And that’s also WHY today we can understand that those who have NOT been “sealed” with Christ’s Holy Spirit will all be DECEIVED AND BLINDED.  And all the while that they are MAKING WAR with Christ and His Word – they are DELUDED just like the Pharisees and the Sadducees were in thinking that THEY ARE SERVING GOD.  When they are the ones serving Satan and in League with him in this Final Spiritual Battle of Good and Evil and TRUTH AND LIES which explains why 2/3 of the World’s unsaved population are every bit as Hypocritical as the Pharisees and the Sadducees were who crucified Christ!!!

Fortunately The Final Spiritual Battle of “Armageddon” and “Gog and Magog”

That is Being Fought Today

Is Christ’s Conquest over Satan and All Evil!!!

CLEARLY – Christ REVEALED to John in his 7 visions that “Armageddon” and “the Gog and Magog” Battle are one and the SAME Final Spiritual Battle of Satan and his False Prophets WAGING WAR against Christ and us True Prophets of Christ.  And fortunately for us True Prophets of Christ going through this intense SPIRITUAL WARFARE right now -- we have God’s Word to lead us into ALL TRUTH!!!  And that TRUTH requires of us to have NOTHING to do with the deeds of DARKNESS but rather to EXPOSE THEM as Paul wrote in Ephesians 5:11.  In other words – Daniel – John and Paul ALL prophesied through what Christ had REVEALED to them of these End-Times -- that “Armageddon” and this Final Spiritual Battle is Christ’s CONQUEST over Satan and ALL EVIL and that we True Prophets of His will WIN in the End if we remain faithful to Christ and His Word!!! 

And because it is the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem” that is the PLACE of Christ’s Victory and the Victory of us True Prophets of Christ who are part of the 144,000 who are fighting this SPIRITUAL WAR of GOOD AND EVIL and TRUTH AND LIES with Satan and his False Prophets – that is WHY the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem” needs defending today – NOT Earthly Jerusalem.  For it can’t be reiterated enough that it is the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem” that John saw in his 7th vision recorded in Revelation Chapter 20 that Satan and His False Prophets will surround and MAKE WAR with – NOT Earthly Jerusalem!!!

The awesome Book of Daniel and Revelation both REVEAL to us the END OF THE STORY of this Present Age of Humanity though the visions that Christ gave to Daniel and John.  And that story tells the True Gospel of the Kingdom of Heaven.  That Christ chose a REMNANT 1/3 of this World’s population to be saved before the foundation of the world that would be delivered from SATAN – SIN – and THE SECOND DEATH which is being thrown into Hell for sins that have NOT been forgiven. 

And that DIVINE PLAN involved Christ as the Son of God coming to Earth as “the Deliverer out of Zion” and “the Messiah the Prince” in Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy prophesied in Daniel 9:27 who would deliver and save the 1/3 Remnant  which The Book of Revelation gives “the God ordained number” to be 144,000.  In other words -- the 144,000 represents the ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST which is now the True Eternal Universal Church that Christ has built on Earth beginning with Noah and his family.  And it is those of us who are part of that 144,000 who are defending Christ’s Word today!!!

And clearly – it just can’t be reiterated enough that the deliverance of Christ of the 1/3 Remnant began in Noah’s Day which foreshadowed the deliverance of a Remnant of Israelites who were part of THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST and also part of the 144,000 in Moses’ Day rescued by Christ Himself from Pharaoh’s Evil Egyptian Empire with Pharaoh being “a type” of SATAN and Moses being “a type” of Christ!!!  And the parting of the Red Sea was the Deliverance which foreshadowed the Deliverance of Christ at the Cross where Christ went to the Cross with the SINS of all of the 1/3 Remnant “Elect” that He had chosen to save out of this World.  And when He rose from the Dead the sins of all those in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST who Christ gave “the God ordained number” of 144,000 to were purged of our sins by Christ’s Death and Resurrection. 

And clearly -- the Deliverance of our saved souls at the Cross foreshadows the soon FINAL Deliverance of Christ from Satan on the LAST DAY which will take place at THE RAPTURE of us “Elect” who are part of the 144,000 living today in this now 21st Century.  In other words – the Deliverance from SATAN – SIN – and THE SECOND DEATH which began in Noah’s Day will NOT be complete until Christ finishes delivering THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST on the LAST DAY.  And that ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST is the 1/3 Remnant that Christ REVEALED to John was the “God ordained number” of 144,000 redeemed that are those of us who have been “sealed” by Christ with His Name invisibly written on our foreheads.

And Christ explicitly REVEALED to John that this Final Deliverance would occur on the LAST DAY of this Present Age of Humanity AFTER the Final Spiritual Battle that we are going through today.  Which means that we are the Generation that Christ REVEALED to Daniel who would be “Blessed” if we made it to the 1,335 days which are these days of GREAT TRIBULATION – for we are the ones who will witness soon the Glorious 2nd Coming of Christ to CONSUMMATE His Millennial Kingdom on Earth and to give us who are part of the 144,000 redeemed a New resurrected Immortal Body like His!!!        

Why The 7th Chapter of Revelation Was Written For Our Apocalypse Generation  

CLEARLY – the awesome 7th Chapter of The Book of Revelation is a CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL PICTURE of what will happen AFTER Christ has finished saving everyone in His True Eternal Universal Church on Earth.  And this 7th Chapter has today’s Final Apocalypse Generation’s Name written all over it – for it doesn’t take a degree in Theology to understand that we are the Final Generation that Christ REVEALED to John that would witness in person the Final Events in History take place that were written in John’s 7 visions in the Book of Revelation.  

In other words -- if one has THE MIND OF CHRIST to understand those 7 visions and the Spiritual eyes of Christ to see that we are today moving fast to the foreordained prophesied predestined time of the LAST DAY of this Present Age of Humanity – then they will know that Christ’s 2nd Coming is right on the Horizon today with all of THE SIGNS that Christ gave to us converging now together as they never have before in History!!!

And to be sure the 7 visions that Christ REVEALED to John of these End-Times foretold one LAST GENERATION of this Human Race that will witness the 2nd Coming of Christ when those of us alive who are part of the redeemed 144,000 would be RAPTURED.  And clearly everyone on Earth has NOW been evangelized given our advancements in Telecommunications which qualifies this Generation to be THE LAST GENERATION!!! 

It also doesn’t take a “SO CALLED” World Renowned Bible Prophecy Expert with a degree from one of the World’s famous Theological Seminaries to understand that we are TODAY in the Final Spiritual Battle of GOOD AND EVIL and TRUTH AND LIES that both of Daniel and John’s visions REVEAL must occur BEFORE Christ’s 2nd Coming.  And those of us who have taken the time to study Christ’s Word and His True Eschatology know for sure that the 2nd Period of Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy is being FULFILLED and our prayers of Christ’s Kingdom in the New Age and being DELIVERED to the New Heavens and the New Earth will soon be answered!!!   

CLEARLY -- there’s just no denying that Christ’s True Eschatology REVEALS that He was “the Messiah the Prince” in the 1stPeriod of Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy WHO CAME to deliver us from SATAN – SIN – and THE SECOND DEATH.   And that we are now living at the very END of the 2nd Part of Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy when Christ REVEALED to both Daniel and John in their visions that Satan would be ruling in his 4th and Final Kingdom on this sin-cursed Earth as “THE ANTICHRIST.”

But it just can’t be reiterated enough – that while the 1st Century Disciples of Christ were given the AWESOME task of advancing the Kingdom of Heaven by taking the Gospel Message of the Kingdom of Heaven to all the Nations of the world -- they were told by Christ that Salvation was NOT “The Never-Ending Story”!!!  That the time of Salvation and the Great Commission would reach an END when all the Nations of the World had been evangelized and everyone in Christ’s Book of Life had been saved.  And there’s just no denying that WE ARE THERE TODAY!!! 

And clearly -- Christ REVEALED that when that DAY of the End of the Great Commission had come -- that we True Prophets of His would know that we were living in the Days of THE END by THE SIGNS that He gave us of His 2nd Coming.  That when we saw all of THE SIGNS converging together like they all are TODAY – that we would understand that His Word would not be unto Salvation any longer but unto JUDGMENT!!!

To be sure -- the 1st Century Disciples were given the awesome task of advancing the Kingdom of Heaven -- while we now in this 21st Century have been given the extremely difficult task of “turning out the lights of the Kingdom and closing the door” so to speak!!!  For clearly -- with Man’s advancements in Telecommunications the whole world has now been evangelized and Christ has NOW LOOSED Satan as His instrument of Worldwide Judgment.  And even though we have to co-exist with Satan’s False Prophets who are AT WAR with us True Prophets of Christ today – Christ REVEALED to both Daniel and John in their visions that we would make it to the END of today’s Great Tribulation because He has ALREADY overcome Satan for us!!! 

CLEARLY – part of taking the Gospel of the Kingdom of Heaven to all the Nations -- includes us True Prophets of this now 21stCentury sounding the Trumpet for Christ that He as THE KING IS COMING BACK SOON.  And that He is Coming Back to both Rapture us “Elect” who are still alive out of the 144,000 that He has redeemed -- and to Judge the 2/3 Remnant out of this World’s population that He chose NOT to save as He REVEALED to Zechariah so many years ago now!!!

My Prayer in Writing This Commentary About the 144,000

I realize that this has been a lengthy introduction to my Commentary on the 144,000 – but it is My Heartfelt Prayer that in the remainder of this Commentary that I can prove through Scripture that there is only has ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST.  And that ONE TRUE BODY is made up of us SONS OF GOD who are part of the 144,000 who Christ REVEALED to John in his 7 visions that are His “Elect” who have NOW all been “sealed” to fight this Final Spiritual Battle along with Christ.  For unless one understands Christ’s True Eschatology about the 144,000 – they will NEVER understand where we are on Christ’ prophetic Timeline and WHO it is that Christ is Coming back soon to RAPTURE!!!

I have been studying Christ’s True Eschatology and BELIEVING His True Gospel that I just explained above for over 20 years now -- and all I can say is: “Buckle your seatbelts – for this year is going to be a year when Satan has for sure marshaled his Army of False Prophets who exist in theirunsaved soul existence on this Earth in the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Babylon the Great” to come AGAINST CHRIST and His Army of us True Prophets who exist in our saved soul existence in the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem” as NEVER BEFORE in History!!! 

And clearly -- it is “Heavenly Jerusalem” that needs defending – NOT Earthly Jerusalem!!!  For again – this is the Final SPIRITUAL BATTLE that we are in right now that is being waged against Christ and us True Prophets of Christ in the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem – and NOT a fight over the Earthly City of Jerusalem in the Middle East which Christ intends to destroy by FIRE on the LAST DAY along with all of the other Cities on this Earth!!!

And in fighting this Final Spiritual Battle -- what Christ needs is for those of us True Prophets in His Christian Army to stand up on our feet and sound the Trumpet for Him that He is coming back soon.  For this is just what Christ REVEALED to John in his 3rd vision recorded in Revelation Chapter 11.  And clearly that vision paints a CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL PICTURE of the 2 Witnesses -- who represent Christ’s True Eternal Universal Church on Earth today -- empowered by Christ to stand up on our feet again to sound the Trumpet for Him that He is Coming Back SOON.  And John saw that we will be empowered by Christ AFTER our witness has been “killed and silenced” by Satan’s False Prophets which it has been now for a number of years. 

CLEARLY – what John saw in his 3rd vision is where we are TODAY on Christ’s Prophetic Timeline.  For the “2 Witnesses” are those of us Born-again Christians living on Earth today who are also part of the 144,000.  And those of us who are part of the 144,000 are the 1/3 redeemed Remnant that are part of THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST that will go through this time of Great Tribulation that Christ Himself prophesied that we would be going through before His Final Deliverance on the LAST DAY!!!  THINK ABOUT IT – it all fits together like a glove when studied with THE MIND OF CHRIST!!!

CLEARLY – we are TODAY in the Prophesied Final Spiritual Battle of GOOD AND EVIL and TRUTH AND LIES!!!  And Christ needs an Army like “THE SONS OF ISSACHAR” were who came to the aid of David so many thousands of years ago now as we read recorded in 1stChronicles 12:32-34!!!  For David was “a type” of Christ as the Leader and King of Israel which foreshadows this Final Spiritual Battle of today with Christ Himself leading His Christian Army here on Earth in one Final Battle against Satan and his False Prophets. 

And “THE SONS OF ISSACHAR” that Christ sent to fight with David CLEARLY had an understanding of the times which is desperately needed today in Christendom.  For there’s just no denying that Christ needs an Army of Men and Women who have an understanding of the times in which we are living which I pray that I can give in writing the remainder of this Commentary for Christ about who the 144,000 are.  For CLEARLY – it is we Born-again Christians that are part of the 144,000 redeemed in Christ’s Christian Amy on Earth TODAY that John saw in his 2nd and 4thvisions recorded in Revelation 7:1-4 and Revelation 14:1-5 that will be fighting alongside of Christ in this Final Spiritual Battle that MUST occur before His 2nd Coming!!! 

And it goes without saying that Christ also needs an Army that is devoted to Him and HIS CAUSE of defeating Satan and the LIES of his False Prophets like Isaiah was when Christ asked in Isaiah’s Day the same thing that He is asking of us today: “Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?” And Isaiah replied:  “Here am I!  Send ME”!!!” (Isaiah 6:8-10)

CLEARLY -- Isaiah answered the call of Christ in the way that was Christ’s WILL for him to do so.  And it is also Christ’s Will TODAY that we True Prophets of His answer that same call in the way that Isaiah did in aligning his will with the WILL OF CHRIST in defeating Satan and his False Prophets in that time on Earth.  For as Christ had Paul write -- we True Prophets of His are put here on this Earth NOT to join hands with those who commit deeds of Darkness – but to EXPOSE those EVIL DEEDS of Darkness by quoting the His Words of TRUTH and by standing up for His righteousness.  

But in order to fight THE LIES of Satan in this Final Spiritual Battle – one has to know who “the True Spiritual Israel of God” is and who the False Prophets of Satan are.  And clearly – we True Prophets of Christ living today in this 21st Century who have been saved by Christ are part of the 144,000 that John saw that had come out of the Great Tribulation who are fighting this Final Spiritual Battle RIGHT NOW when we read:

“After these things I looked, and behold, a Great Multitude which no one could number, of all Nations, tribes, peoples, and tongues, standing before the Throne and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, with palm branches in their hands,  and crying out with a loud voice, saying, “Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!” (Revelation 7:9-13)  And when John asked WHO these 144,000 Redeemed were – he was told: “These are the ones who come out of the Great Tribulation, and washed their robes and made them white in the Blood of the Lamb.” (Rev. 7:14) 

Christ has been THE ONE as He REVEALED to Zechariah who has now brought His 1/3 Remnant through the trials and tribulations of this World which certainly includes this time NOW of Great Tribulation.  May Christ give us all who are enduring today’s prophesied time of Great Tribulation -- the Spiritual eyes to see THE TRUTH of these End-Times.  For in writing this Commentary – it is my Prayer that we might all KNOW that Christ’s Cause has always been to restore a Remnant of the Nation of Israel to God and to bring the Light of the Gospel of the Kingdom of Heaven to a Remnant of us Gentiles in all the Nations of the World by reconciling both Jews and Gentiles together into THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST which has now been fulfilled. 

CLEARLY – with THAT CAUSE OF CHRIST now fulfilled -- the reason for Christ’s 2nd Coming is the CONSUMMATION – the CULMINATION – or the bringing to COMPLETION the realized inaugurated Millennial Kingdom of Christ that those of us who are part of the redeemed 144,000 have now been reigning in with Christ since His 1st Coming.  For Christ’s resurrection from the DEAD is what made the Millennial Kingdom of Christ a REALITY – and His 2nd Coming which is right on the Horizon now -- is what will Consummate it!!!  And when Christ’s Millennial Kingdom is Consummated -- it will be THE END of the Human Race.

And that is WHY we are now living in the LAST GENERATION and need to know who the 144,000 are who will be in Heaven with Christ soon.  So without any further ado – here is a glimpse at who the Jehovah’s Witnesses say the 144,000 are along with who Dispensationalists say the 144,000 are compared to who CHRIST SAYS THE 144,000 are!!!  And the important question is “Who will YOU believe after reading this Commentary that the 144,000 are???!!!”     

What the Jehovah Witnesses Teach About the 144,000

CLEARLY -- if one believes THE TRUTH of what Christ’s Word explicitly declares about Salvation – then they will KNOW without a shadow of a doubt that Christ only has ONE TRUE HOLY NATION that is made up of both Jews and Gentiles that have NOW TODAY been reconciled together into THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST.  For Christ explicitly had Paul prophesy this very important TRUTH about Salvation that He broke down the Middle Wall that separated the Jews from the Gentiles in all the Nations of the World when we read:

 

“For He Himself is our peace, who has made both ONE, and has broken down the Middle Wall of separation,  having abolished in His flesh the enmity, that is, the law of commandments contained in ordinances, so as to create in Himself ONE NEW MAN from the two, thus making peace, and that He might reconcile them both to God in ONE BODY (NOT 2 as both Jehovah Witnesses and Dispensationalists teach!!!) through the cross, thereby putting to death the enmity.” (referring of course to the enmity that existed between the Jews and Gentiles before the Cross!!!) (Ephesians 2:14-16)

 

What Paul prophesied from the Lord recorded in Ephesians 2 about Christ Himself being our PEACE who has reconciled both Jews and Gentiles together into THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST – was exactly what Christ REVEALED to John.  That the 144,000 were redeemed by Christ breaking down the Middle Wall of separation abolishing in His flesh the enmity between Jews and Gentiles that existed on Earth before the Cross.  And CLEARLY – this ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST is the only Holy Nation that Christ has ever had on this Earth.  And that means that the Deliverance of the RAPTURE on the LAST DAY only includes those of us who are part of this 144,000 that Christ REVEALED to John who He had redeemed – THINK ABOUT IT!!!  

 

CLEARLY -- understanding just who the 144,000 are in John’s 2nd and 4th visions from Christ recorded in Revelation 7:1-4 and Revelation 14:1-5 -- is extremely important.  For according to what Christ REVEALED to John in his 7 visions -- only those who are part of the 144,000 who have been redeemed and “sealed” will survive today’s Final Spiritual Battle and will overcome Satan to be Raptured on the LAST DAY.  In other words – Christ has NO OTHER Holy Nation or group of people but this ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST who are part of the 144,000 that John saw that Christ had redeemed.

But even with what Christ REVEALED to John in his 7 visions -- there have still been many different Gospels of Man that have tried to give a DIFFERENT explanation of who they have thought these 144,000 represent.  That’s why when one thinks of the 144,000 -- they often think of the Jehovah’s Witnesses explanation of this infamous group – for certainly we have all heard of their explanation of the 144,000 at one time or another in our lifetime.  But rest assured that what Christ REVEALED to John about the 144,000 has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with whatCharles Taze Russel first convinced the Jehovah Witnesses to believe.  For the Jehovah’s Witnesses believe and teach that only 144,000 people enter Heaven and that the rest of the Human Race will either live forever on earth if they are Jehovah’s Witnesses or be annihilated.  And that is WHY it needs to be understood what Christ taught about the 144,000 and what I pray I can REVEAL in the remainder of this Commentary through Scripture – for only what Christ taught about the 144,000 is THE TRUTH!!!

And THE TRUTH is that the Bible is the story of God working with only ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST all throughout History – NOT 2 Bodies.  And that ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST was chosen by Christ Himself to be saved before the foundation of the world.  CLEARLY -- the sign of TRUE SALVATION is one humbly receiving from Christ’s Word that we did NOT choose Him – but that Christ chose us to be part of the 144,000 redeemed when He prophesied:

You did not choose Me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain . . . . .(John 15:16) ”

And clearly what all of us should be praying for who are part of the 144,000 who Christ REVEALED to John who He had saved out of this World and who Christ also REVEALED to Zechariah would be the 1/3 Remnant out of this Human Race who would be saved –  is that we are bearing the “good fruit” of Christ’s Word on just who the 144,000 are – THINK ABOUT IT!!!

But SADLY -- The Watchtower teachings have convinced the Jehovah’s Witnesses that Christ has 2 Bodies of people.  That most of them will live on Paradise Earth for all their existence and that only a LITERAL number of 144,000 are “Elected” to go to Heaven.  To the Jehovah Witness -- the 144,000 is the most crucial teaching since the inception of their organization – but their understanding of the 144,000 is CLEARLY NOT what Christ’s taught.  For their teaching divides who they think is the Body of Christ into two classes or bodies of people which are: 1) the Heavenly class -- and 2) the Earthly class.  And clearly – the Jehovah’s Witnesses teach that “the Heavenly Class” only consists of A LITERAL 144,000 which is the foundation for the whole organization and how they relate to their members.  For their Gospel Truth is that only 144,000 of the Body of Christ are going to make it to Heaven while the rest of the Human Race will live out their Paradise as God’s Elect here on Earth only IF they become Jehovah’s Witnesses.  But not to be disrespectful to Jehovah’s Witnesses – that is NOT AT ALL what Christ’s True Eschatology teaches!!!  

For THE TRUTH from the Bible is that NO ONE goes to Heaven except through Christ WHO CHOSE US before the foundation of the World.   And those chosen make up THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST that Christ REVEALED to John were the “God ordained number” of 144,000 in his 2 visions.  CLEARLY -- Christ’s True Gospel is the ONLY WAY and TRUTH that must be believed as a prerequisite to enter Heaven. 

In other words -- the JESUS one trusts in is defined by the Doctrines one believes in – and if the Doctrines of Salvation that one believes in is NOT authored by Christ then their Gospel is FALSE and they are NOT SAVED and part of the 144,000 that Christ REVEALED to John who were redeemed. 

CLEARLY – there is NOT time in this short Commentary to go into what Jehovah’s Witnesses believe about the 144,000 – but suffice it to say that Charles Taze Russell who was the original founder of the Jehovah’s Witnesses taught something very different than what the Jehovah Witnesses teach today.  For when the Jehovah’s Witnesses was 1st founded -- Russell taught that the members of the Watchtower were ALL “anointed” and part of the 144,000 who were also part of the “Spiritual Israel of God” that had the hope of going to Heaven which was not too far off from THE TRUTH of God’s Unadulterated Word.  

In other words -- the early Watchtower teaching was that ALL Jehovah’s Witnesses would go to Heaven and there was no Paradise Earth teaching – NOR was there any teaching on two classes of people for their members.  But where Russell really departed from Christ’s Word was that he actually taught that the calling of the 144,000 was completed in 1881 and they were the ones who would ALL THEN go to Heaven.

But that prophecy obviously was proven FALSE when Russell died in 1916 and their group was still here on Earth.  And when Judge Joseph Rutherford became the new President – he changed the whole teaching on the 144,000 under his new leadership.  Rutherford (1869-1942) published the Book The Finished Mystery which predicted that in 1918 God would destroy all of the churches on Earth and the millions of their members -- for he claimed that by 1920 every Earthly Kingdom would be swallowed up in anarchy.  That only the Jehovah’s Witnesses would remain.  And because of this prophecy Rutherford started prophesying that Armageddon was right around the corner – which led the Jehovah’s Witnesses to work even harder than before in teaching that the only way to escape the impending Judgment and destruction of God was to join the Watchtower organization.  

This program continued for years and the new ideas of the 144,000 that Rutherford put forth in his Book continued to be taught after Russell died along with the idea that the 144,000 called “the Heavenly class” would be the ONLY ONES who would go to be with Jesus in Heaven while the other Jehovah Witnesses would now be made up of a “Great Crowd” which was “the Earthly Class” that had an even greater privilege.  For it was taught that this “Great Crowd” of Jehovah’s Witnesses would have the privilege of living on Earth in the Millennium in the perfect conditions of Paradise.

And this is why no Jehovah’s Witnesses really wants to go to Heaven even today.  For to them it is better to be on Paradise Earth with their family experiencing perfect harmony with nature than to be with the Lord Jesus in Heaven as part of the 144,000 – REALLY!!!  In other words -- in the eyes of most Jehovah Witnesses the Members of “the anointed class of 144,000” in Heaven are an estranged group to “the Earthly class” and one that is not envied by most of them.  For to most Jehovah’s Witnesses NOT being able to live on into the future in the restored Paradise on Earth is repulsive to them since it would mean being separated from friends and family only to be banished to Heaven to be part of an “élite” group that they really don’t want to be part of anyway.   

There is no doubt much more to the teaching of the 144,000 in the Gospel of the Jehovah’s Witnesses than I have written here – but suffice it to say that the number of the 144,000 to the Jehovah’s Witness is a LITERAL number that represents a limited group of believers who are to become “the Spirit Sons” of Jehovah who will make up the 144,000 and the “Heavenly Class.”  And clearly -- their interpretation of being “born again” pertains only to the exclusive number of the LITERAL and limited number of Jehovah’s Witnesses that are willing to become part of the 144,000.  This 144,000 are called “the little flock” taken from Christ’s statement: “Fear not, little flock...” in Luke 12:32.  And while the vast majority of the Jehovah Witnesses are NOT part of this “Little Flock” of 144,000 who are the only ones they believe are going to Heaven – they believe that they are extremely privileged to be part of “the Great Crowd” that make up the other group that are now referred to as “the other sheep I have which are not of this fold...” recorded in John 10:16 that will exist on Paradise Earth throughout their whole existence.  

In other words – according to their Gospel Message of the Kingdom of Heaven -- The “little flock” are to be “the Spirit Sons” that will be in Heaven ruling with Christ who make up the 144,000 -- while the “other sheep” who are the majority of Jehovah’s Witnesses are to be physical inhabitants of the restored Earth which will be a Paradise in the Millennial Kingdom.

The Watchtower Society’s position today -- is that it nearly reached the completed 144,000 number in 1935 and only a few are now left to complete the number that will be in Heaven.  And that means that “Armageddon” and God’s Judgments will soon be poured out.  And for The Jehovah’s Witnesses born after 1935 – they have been taught that their only hope in the next life is to be part of the “Great Crowd” of Witnesses who are part of Christ’s “other sheep” here on Paradise Earth.  But in all due respect – according to Christ’s Unadulterated Word -- they have COMPLETELY missed the point on the teaching of the 144,000!!!  In other words – even though Jehovah’s witnesses are sincere and devoted to their beliefs – their beliefs are SINCERELY WRONG according to Christ’s Word!!! 

Tim LaHaye and His Dispensationalist Colleague’s Explanation of the 144,000

CLEARLY -- the Jehovah’s Witnesses are NOT the only ones who have tried to explain who the 144,000 represent apart from what Christ taught.  For after the Late Tim LaHaye’s success of his “Left Behind Series” of the Pre-Trib Rapture – Dispensationalists have continued to teach relentlessly that the 144,000 of the awesome Book of Revelation refer to a select number of JEWS who in the Future Christ will “seal” to evangelize the World after THE RAPTURE of the New Testament Church.  In other words -- Christ will use these 144,000 “sealed” Jews to take the Gospel Message of the Kingdom of Heaven to the multitudes that have been “Left Behind” AFTER the RAPTURE!!!  

And what these 144,000 Jews are “sealed” from according to Dispensationalists -- is from the Divine Judgments that Christ Himself will pour out during their 7 year mission of spreading the Gospel of the Kingdom of Heaven -- which again they teach is the 7 year Tribulation Period that will take place on Earth AFTER the Rapture of the New Testament Church.  In other words – Dispensationalists teach that the 144,000 Jews are “sealed” so they won’t die with the rest of the over ½ of the 7.6 Billion people living on Earth today who they teach will be killed by the Last 7 Plagues during the 7 year Tribulation Period. 

And not only will the 144,000 Jews be “sealed” to evangelize those “Left Behind” after the Rapture -- but Dispensationalist believe that there will also be 2 LITERAL Witnesses who will be raised from the DEAD while everyone on International T.V. watches.  And that both the 144,000 Jews and the 2 reincarnated Witnesses will have the Divine protection of God to then evangelize those “Left Behind” after the Rapture. 

And CLEARLY – Dipensationalists believe that the 7 years of Tribulation is the time of GOD’S WRATH which is WHY they also believe the New Testament Church MUST of necessity be Raptured because the Church has NOT been appointed to God’s WRATH.  For certainly they believe that the killing of 3.8 BILLION people who they claim will die with the pouring out of the Last 7 Plagues -- is GOD’S WRATH!!!

Not to mention that they also believe that halfway through the 7 years of Tribulation with the 7 Plagues being poured out by Christ – that “THE ANTICHRIST” will stand up in the rebuilt 3rd Temple in Jerusalem and declare himself to be GOD and that THEN there will be GREAT TRIBULATION from that point forward for anyone “Left Behind.”  And this time of Great Tribulation will be caused by anyone NOT taking THE ANTICHRIST’S number of 666.  For they claim that without the infamous “MARK OF THE BEAST” – that NO ONE will be able to buy food to survive the rest of the 7 Plagues being poured out. 

But things on Earth will get even more dire and desperate when those without “THE ANTICHRIST’S number” of 666 branded on their forehead or their right hand will either be beheaded by those of “THE ANTICHRIST’S” One World Government or they will wonder around hiding from the Head officials of this Evil One World Government much like the characters did in the Movie “The Hunger Games” only to starve to death anyway.  And that is why Dispensationalists believe that everyone who has been “Left Behind” will wonder: “Who can stand from THE WRATH of God?” as Christ had John write in Revelation 6:17!!!

It is because Dispensationalists believe that the Great Tribulation is THE WRATH OF GOD when the Last 7 Plagues poured out during the 7 years will kill over half of the 7.6 Billion people on Earth – that Christ had John write this rhetorical question of wondering if any of Mankind will survive these plagues and the infamous “MARK OF THE BEAST” when no one is allowed to buy and sell without THE ANTICHRIST’S NUMBER OF 666!!!

Dispensationalists teach that the 7 year Tribulation Period is a time when God will enact Divine Judgment against those who have rejected Him.  But that it will also be a time to give all of those “Left Behind” one last chance to be saved by the evangelizing of the 144,000 Jews and the 2 Witness who have been raised from the DEAD that God has “sealed” for this very purpose.  But most importantly it is the time when Christ will continue saving the WHOLE Nation of Israel En-Masse because Dispenastionalist wholehearted believe that THE JEWS have ALWAYS been Christ’s True Chosen People.  

And to back up this teaching about the 144,000 Jewish Evangelists of the Future along with the resurrected 2 Witnesses – Dispensationalists claim that their Eschatology is based solely on Christ’s revelation to the prophet Daniel.  That the 70th Week Prophecy recorded in Daniel 9:24-27 is yet Future and ONLY a prophecy for the Nation of Israel – NOT for God’s other Body of people who are The New Testament Church who have already been Raptured from THE WRATH of God and will escape the Great Tribulation of “THE ANTICHRIST” demanding that everyone take his number of 666.

HONESTLY without even realizing it – Dispensationalists are every bit as much AT WAR with Christ and His teaching of the 144,000 as the Jehovah’s Witnesses are – for they both have separated THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST that Christ came to Earth to save into 2 Bodies of people – THINK ABOUT IT!!!  While The Jehovah’s Witnesses claim that the 144,000 is a LITERAL number of people who will reign with Christ in Heaven and spend eternity with God which they call “the Heavenly hope” and the “Heavenly people” – they claim that those in their fellowship who are NOT among the 144,000 with the “Heavenly hope” will enjoy what they call is “the Earthly hope” and will be “the Earthly people” who will live on Earth in the Paradise that God will set up for them which will be ruled by Christ and the 144,000 “Heavenly people.” 

And HONESTLY -- that is NOT much different than the Dispensationalists who also separate THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST into 2 distinct groups of people which are 1) the Nation of Israel – and 2) The New Testament Church.  Which they claim also have different destinies and different Salvation Plans designed by Christ Himself just like the Jehovah’s Witnesses claim.

In other words – both the Jehovah’s Witnesses and Dispensationalists separate THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST into two distinct groups with one group occupying the Earth during the Future Millennial Kingdom – and the Heavenly People occupying Heaven.   There are of course some differences to be sure – for Dispensationalists teach the Rapture of the Church takes place BEFORE the Millennial Kingdom of Christ begins.  And that going into this Future Millennial Kingdom will be: 1)those with glorified bodies that Christ will bring with Him after the Rapture of the Church to reign with Him on Earth for a 1000 years – and 2) those with Earthly bodies who lived through the 7 year Tribulation Period and on into the Millennial Kingdom.

And while it is very clear to Dispensationalists (even though it is extremely confusing to ME!!!) -- they teach that those with glorified bodies who Christ will bring with Him AFTER THE RAPTURE consist of the members of the New Testament Church who have received their glorified bodies at THE RAPTURE. While those who were “Left Behind” after the Rapture are resurrected and given New resurrected Glorified Bodies after Christ returns to Earth at the END of the Millennial Kingdom Reign of Christ on Earth for a 1000 years. 

Part of the Dispensationalists’ Gospel and Eschatology -- is that in the Future Millennial Kingdom of Christ on Earth those who have Earthly bodies who have survived the 7 year Tribulation Period can also be subdivided into two groups which are 1) the believing Gentiles and – 2) the believing Jews of the Nation of Israel who are both still reproducing off springs which is necessary in order to repopulate the Earth during the Millennial Kingdom of Christ which takes place for a 1000 years.   But in all of this VERY CONFUSING Eschatology of Dispensationalism that I’m not sure even I got right because it is so convoluted and confusing to understand – it should be noted that Dispensationalists continue to separate the ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST right up to the END of what they claim is the Future 1000 year Millennial Reign of Christ on Earth that hasn’t taken place yet. 

But when studied carefully with THE MIND OF CHRIST and His Holy Spirit – the Eschatology of both Dispensationalists and Jehovah’s Witnesses DENIES – CONTRADICTS – DISTORTS and even CHALLENGES what Christ had His Apostles teach and especially Paul about who will be in His Millennial Kingdom that was inaugurated after His resurrection.  For clearly -- Christ had Paul write from Him that THE CAUSE OF HIS COMING TO EARTH and the “Mystery of the Gospel of the Kingdom of Heaven” was to UNITE the SONS OF GOD that He had chosen before the foundation of the world by reconciling both Jews and Gentile together into THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST that John saw in his 2nd and 4th visions was the 144,000 when we read of this “MYSTERY”:

“This MYSTERY (referring to the Gospel of the Kingdom of Heaven!!!) is that the GENTILES are FELLOW HEIRS, members of the SAME BODY, and partakers of the promise (of Eternal Life!!!) in Christ Jesus through the Gospel.” (which proves that Christ only has ONE TRUE BODY of believers –NOT 2 as both Dispensationalists and Jehovah’s Witnesses teach!!!  And as Christ REVEALED to John -- THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST are all of us who are part of “the God ordained number” of 144,000) (Ephesians 3:6)

Dispensationalists Believe that The 144,000 Jews  Along with the 2 Witnesses

will Evangelize the Whole World After The Rapture

CLEARLY -- Dispensationalists also FALSELY claim that the 144,000 Jews that are to be “sealed” by Christ in the Future AFTER the Rapture of The New Testament Church – are somehow the “first fruits” that John saw in his 4th vision recorded in Revelation 14:4 who are the redeemed out of the Nation of Israel which they also teach have been previously prophesied to be “the first fruits” in Zechariah 12:10 and Romans 11:25-27.  And they relentlessly teach that the mission of the 144,000 in this now 21st Century will be to evangelize the Post-Rapture World and proclaim the Gospel of the Kingdom of Heaven during the 7 year Tribulation period which will fulfill Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy.  

In addition to all this – Dispensationalists believe that the GOOD NEWS and the result of the ministry of the “sealed” 144,000 Jews along with the 2 resurrected Witnesses during the 7 year Period of Daniel’s 70th Week – will be that MILLIONS UPON MILLIONS -- or “a great multitude that no one could count, from every Nation, tribe, people and language”(Revelation 7:9) as John saw in his 2nd vision -- will come to Faith in Christ during the Great Tribulation.  In other words – there will be a Revival so large that it will surpass any time of evangelizing during the last over 2,000 years now of the Great Commission and Church Outreach up until this time in History.  REALLY???!!!  What was the purpose of the Great Commission if this IS TRUE???!!!  Which is WHY it is NOT TRUE!!!  AND HERE’S WHY!!!

CLEARLY -- where Dispensationalist’s Gospel and Eschatology starts to go SOUTH and depart from what Christ taught about the 144,000 – is their belief that Christ has 2 Bodies of people.  For when they erroneously separate THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST into 1) The Nation of Israel – and 2) The New Testament Church they are DENYING – CONTRADICTING – DISTORTING and CHALLENGING what Christ taught that His Cause of Coming to Earth was.  Which was to restore only a REMNANT of the Nation of Israel to God and to bring the Light of the Gospel of the Kingdom of Heaven to a Remnant of Gentiles reconciling both Jews and Gentiles together into THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST. 

In other words -- Dispensationalists insist that ALL of the Nation of Israel will eventually be saved because they WHOLEHEARTEDLY believe that out of the 2 Bodies of people that Christ has been working with throughout History -- that the Nation of Israel has always been made up of Christ only True “Elect” and Chosen people and that they will ALL BE SAVED in the End.  And CLEARLY -- their idea of the 144,000 is that they are LITERAL JEWS that Christ takes from the LITERAL 12 Tribes of Israel who will evangelize the World and especially the Whole Nation of Israel after the Rapture.  And they refuse to believe that the 144,000 are those that Christ redeemed from every Nation and tribe and Language and Race on Earth that Christ REVEALED to Abraham thousands of years ago that would become THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST and would be as numerous as the stars of Heaven!!!

Dispensationalists clearly teach that Christ has NOT yet broken down the “Middle Wall” that separated the Jews and Gentiles and reconciled them both together into THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST – that this won’t happen until the Great Revival during the Future Great Tribulation which brings about a time of tremendous evangelizing of those “Left Behind” after the Rapture by the 144,000 Jews and the 2 Witnesses.  In other words – it is not until the END of the Millennial Kingdom after everyone has been evangelized and converted that Christ will FINALLY reconcile these 2 Bodies of people that He has been working with throughout History which are: 1) The Nation of Israel – and 2) The New Testament Church into ONE BODY. 

One could honestly say that Dispensationalists believe in what Mark Twain once wrote: “never the twain shall meet” – for they continue to separate God’s people right up to the END of the Future Millennial Kingdom.   And that’s WHY Dispensationalists teach and believe that the 70th Week of Daniel is yet Future and that there won’t be ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST until AFTER the 7 year Tribulation Period and after Christ Returns to set up His Millennial Kingdom of a 1000 years on Earth.  But according to their Gospel and Eschatology -- if anyone can understand it all – for quite frankly I for one am CONFUSED???!!! – they clearly have a different opinion about the 144,000 than Christ does – THINK ABOUT IT!!! 

And it just can’t be reiterated enough that just like the Jehovah’s Witnesses -- Dispensationalists have also departed from Christ’s Unadulterated Word about who He came to Earth to save!!!  For clearly – Christ taught that it was NOT just THE JEWS of the Nation of Israel that would be saved – NOR just 144,000 Elect Jehovah’s Witnesses – but that the 144,000 would be made up of “a great multitude that no one could count from every Nation, tribe, people and language” on Earth as John wrote from his 2nd  vision recorded in Revelation 7:9 which is a vision of Christ REVEALING to John just who the 144,000 ARE!!! 

And clearly – Christ NEVER once taught that this Great Multitude would be the result of the Evangelizing of the World by 144,000 Jews and 2 Witnesses AFTER the Rapture at the END OF THE WORLD like the Dispensationalists teach – HARDLY!!!  For He has been evangelizing this Great Multitude for over 2,000 years now during the 1st Part of Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy of Church Outreach.  And likewise – Christ NEVER once taught that the 144,000 would be a LITERAL number of Jehovah’s Witnesses who would be the only ones in Heaven when the Human Race is over!!!!

For according to Christ’s True Gospel Message of the Kingdom of Heaven – He explicitly prophesied to Abraham that he would be “the Father of MANY NATIONS.”   And that NOT just the Hebrew Nation in Abraham’s day or only 144,000 LITERAL Jehovah’s Witnesses would be part of His Holy Nation whose Final Estate is HEAVEN -- but that Abraham’s descendants who are also Christ’s descendants would be as numerous as the stars in Heaven.  And Christ clearly taught that the greatest Evangelizing of the World would take place during the time of Church Outreach that He prophesied would happen during the 1st Period of Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy – NOT at the End of the 2nd Period of Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy when He explicitly taught that THE CONSUMATION of His Millennial Kingdom would take place!!! 

CLEARLY -- Christ has been delivering “the God ordained” number of 144,000 as John wrote from his 2 visions recorded in Revelation 7:1-4 and Revelation 14:1-5 ever since Abraham’s days.  And it just can’t be reiterated enough that Christ taught that this 144,000 is made up of:

“A Great Multitude which no one could number, (which has come from) ALL (the) Nations, tribes, peoples, and tongues, (out of the 1/3 Remnant that Christ REVEALED to Zechariah that would be saved!!!) standing before the Throne and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, with palm branches in their hands, and crying out with a loud voice, saying, “Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!” (Revelation 7:9)

Evidence that Demands a Verdict

That the 144,000 is The One True Body of Christ and NOT

The “Spirit Sons” of “the Little Flock” of Jehovah’s Witness or “144,000 Sealed Jews”

HONESTLY --  I mean NO disrespect to Dispensationalists or to Jehovah’s Witnesses AT ALL.  For all of them are very sincere people who think that their Gospel is the True Gospel of Christ!!!  And while I’ve never been a Jehovah’s Witness -- I know firsthand that Dispensationalists love the Lord because I was once a Dispensationalist myself many years ago now.  But that was BEFORE Christ showed me in His Word and through His Holy Spirit that the Gospel and Eschatology that Dispensationalists teach of the 144,000 was NOT His Gospel of who the 144,000 redeemed are that will be spending Eternity with Him in the New Heavens and the New Earth after the LAST DAY’S RAPTURE. 

HONESTLY -- what is really needed to understand just WHO the 144,000 are -- is more evidence from Scripture that demands a verdict from Christ Himself who the 144,000 represents -- which I pray that I can supply in the remainder of this Commentary!!!  For clearly -- it is only because I have been studying the evidence that Christ gives in Scripture of the 144,000 for many years now that I believe beyond a shadow of doubt that when Christ does Return soon – it will NOT be to save ALL the LITERAL Nation of Israel En-Masse as Dispensationalist teach relentlessly -- HARDLY!!! 

Christ only has ONE TRUE BODY of Believers -- and when He Raptures us who are part of the 144,000 on the LAST DAY -- the Human Race is over!!!  In other words -- Christ will NOT be Returning to Earth to establish His Millennial Kingdom which was inaugurated at His 1st Coming.  For He taught that the reason for His 2nd Coming will be to RAPTURE those of us who are part of the 144,000 that He has redeemed and to bring JUDGMENT on those who are NOT part of THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST that He chose NOT TO SAVE!!!  And that is THE END of the story of Mankind pure and simple!!!  

There are only two Ages mentioned in the Bible – this present Age of Humanity and the New Age to come in the New Heavens and the New Earth – and NO in-between Age when Dispensationalists teach that Christ will return to reign on this sin-cursed Earth for another 1000 years.  For Christ is REIGNING NOW as the King of kings and the Lord of Lords of His Spiritual Millennial Kingdom of Heaven and has been since Eternity began!!!

But suffice it to say – that one can understand where Dispensationalists get their misunderstanding of the 144,000.  For with only a casual reading of Revelation Chapter 7 -- it might appear that a LITERAL understanding of the physical Nation of Israel is being spoken of and that only a LITERAL 144,000 Jews will be sealed or saved in the Future out of the LITERAL 12 Tribes of Israel.  However -- when studied carefully with THE MIND OF CHRIST and His Holy Spirit – we True Prophets of Christ should understand from Christ’s Holy Spirit and Word that BOTH Jehovah’s Witnesses and Dispensationalists are WRONG!!!  AND HERE’S WHY!!!

Chapter 7 in the awesome Book of Revelation cannot be speaking of the Nation of Israel in the Middle East today.  Indeed -- if we are to take the Israel that is spoken of in Revelation 7 as the LITERAL Nation in the Middle East today – or that the 144,000 are speaking of only the LITERAL physical Jews in Jerusalem and around the world today as Dispensationalists teach -- then we must of necessity also take the number “sealed” as being LITERAL too.  And that would mean that only 144,000 will be secured or saved out of the whole Human Race and in Heaven when this Human Race Ends.   

 And isn’t that where the Jehovah’s Witnesses started getting off track too when they began to teach that the “God ordained” number of 144,000 referred to a LITERAL number of only Jehovah’s Witnesses going to Heaven???!!!  HONESTLY -- not even the staunchest advocates of “the Literal at all cost exegesis Crowd” of Dispensationalists actually believe that Christ only saved 144,000 people on Earth – THINK ABOUT IT!!!

HONESTLY -- neither the Gospel of Jehovah’s Witnesses or the Gospel of Dispensationalists is TRUE about the 144,000.  For the 144,000 are NOT LITERALLY Jewish Male Virgins from the LITERAL 12 tribes of Israel – nor are they “the Spirit Sons” of “the Little Flock” as Jehovah’s Witnesses teach!!!   If the 144,000 are who the Jehovah’s Witnesses or the Dispensationalists say they are -- then one needs to explain WHY Christ’s Disciple Peter -- who was married and obviously NOT a virgin – and Christ’s own Mother Mary who was NOT a Male – and the founder of the Jehovah’s Witnesses Charles Taze Russel who was NOT a Jew -- could EVER be counted as part of the 144,000 if this number is to be taken LITERALLY – THINK ABOUT IT!!!  For obviously at least most Professed Christians think that both Peter and Christ’s Mother are in Heaven regardless of who they believe the 144,000 represents!!! 

HONESTLY – it’s hard to fathom how anyone can believe that Christ only saved 144,000 that haven’t even stepped up on the stage of Human History yet and that when they do step up on the stage of Human History that they will only be Jewish Male Virgins from the 12 LITERAL tribes of Israel that will be “sealed” to evangelize the World after the Rapture as Dispnesationalists teach.  Or that they will be the “Spirit Sons” of “the Little Flock” who are just Jehovah Witnesses who will be the 144,000 that will be in Heaven!!! 

I mean think about it -- hasn’t Christ ALREADY evangelized the world in the Great Commission of Church Outreach in the 1stPeriod of Daniel’s 70th Week prophecy for the last over 2000 years now???!!!  And doesn’t it make sense that the 144,000 are the 1/3 Remnant that Christ REVEALED to Zechariah that would be saved out of this Human Race who are like “the stars of Heaven” as Christ REVEALED to Abraham???!!!

The fact that the 144,000 remain the same leads one to THE TRUTH of Christ’s Gospel -- that the 144,000 represent THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST made up of both Jews and Gentiles and Old and New Testament saints that are the 1/3 Remnant that Christ REVEALED to Zechariah would be His people.  And it just can’t be reiterated enough that the reason the number of 144,000 remains unchangeable – is because it is “a God ordained number” that Christ has used to convey the SPIRITUAL TRUTH that He has NOT lost one of those He chose to save before the foundation of the world for ALL ETERNITY.  But rest assured there is plenty more evidence than that which we have from Scripture that demands a verdict that this “God ordained number” has a CRYPTIC MESSAGE!!!  

More Evidence why The 144,000 are Not Going to be 21st Century Jews of the Future

or “the Spirit Sons”  of Jehovah’s Witnesses 

While one has to hand it to the Late Tim LaHaye and his Dispensationalist Colleagues in getting MOST of Christendom today to believe in their ever so popular Eschatology of these End-Times – it sadly may be responsible for many of them being “Left Behind” when the Rapture finally does happen soon.  For their explanation of the 144,000 is just NOT the True Gospel of Christ when it comes to who has been saved and who has NOT been saved by Christ!!!  Nor is the Gospel of the Jehovah’s Witnesses correct either with Rutherford’s new version of the 144,000 being the LITERAL number of Jehovah’s Witnesses who will be the only ones in Heaven. 

The number 144,000 is not only “a God ordained number” that is NOT a LITERAL number -- but what it conveys is obviously a CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL PICTURE of WHO Christ REVEALED to John that the redeemed 1/3 out of this World’s population truly are.  HONESTLY -- in reading Revelation Chapter 7 one should notice right away that NOT ALL the LITERAL 12 tribes of Israel are even listed -- THINK ABOUT IT!!!  And because not ALL the LITERAL 12 Tribes of Israel are mentioned in Revelation Chapter 7 – it should be A DEAD GIVE AWAY that Christ was REVEALING to John a CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL PICTURE of “the Spiritual Israel of God” – NOT a description of the LITERAL Nation of Israel in the Middle East!!!

CLEARLY – the tribe of Dan is missing from the 12 Tribes listed in Revelation Chapter 7 and that is NO insignificant hurdle for Dispensationalists who are insistent on taking this Chapter along with most of The Book of Revelation LITERALLY.  For it says “all the tribes of Israel” -- and yet it does NOT list Dan which is LITERALLY an original and LITERAL Tribe of the 12 Tribes – THINK ABOUT IT!!!  And from that point ALONE – we should be able to conclude that only in the True Spiritual Israel of God do we understand the SPIRITUAL TRUTH and significance that what Christ is presenting here is ALL of the families of the Spiritual Israel of God – NOT the Nation of Israel in the Middle East!!! 

In other words – it is speaking of those of every tribe from every Nation who have Salvation redeemed by “the deliverer out of Zion” who turned away ungodliness from Jacob.  And NOT by blood lines or vain physical genealogies -- but by the promise of Eternal Life made to Abraham which after the Cross included people from every Nation and tribe and language and color of people on Earth.

And in understanding from Christ WHO the 144,000 are -- it just can’t be reiterated enough that Christ’s Eschatology REVEALS that it is “the Spiritual Israel of God” that is the Holy Nation of God that is IN CHRIST -- NOT the Nation in the Middle East which is made up primarily of “the unsaved Jews of the Flesh” who still to this day do NOT believe that Christ was “the Messiah the Prince” in Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy WHO CAME!!!

In other words -- it is “the saved Jews of the Spirit” – NOT “the unsaved Jews of the Flesh” which now make up THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST and the only Nation that has ever had in this World.  And it is this ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST that John saw were counted among the 144,000 redeemed out of “all the Land” as Christ also REVEALED to Zechariah that would be saved.

CLEARLY – Christ is using CRYPTIC NUMBERS to reach the number of 144,000 which is 12,000 times the 12 tribes signifying the measured congregation of the Lord’s “Chosen ELECT.”  For the number 12 is the number used by Christ for His True Eternal Universal Church all throughout the Old and New Testaments.  And because each tribe listed in Revelation 7 has exactly 12,000 sealed – it is yet another DEAD GIVE AWAY that Christ is speaking in SPIRITUAL LANGUAGE conveying SPIRITUAL TRUTHS that must be understood with His Holy Spirit and through THE MIND OF CHRIST!!! 

In other words – Christ is using CRYPTIC NUMBERS to paint a CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL PICTURE of those that He REVEALED to John that would be part of His SPIRITUAL CITY of  “Heavenly Jerusalem” both here on Earth and in the New Heavens and  the New Earth after one dies.

And one only has to read the description of Heavenly Jerusalem that Christ REVEALED to John in his 7th vision to understand that Christ is using the number 12 as a CRYPTIC NUMBER to represent THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST that make up the 144,000.  In other words -- no one could read John’s description of the Heavenly City of Jerusalem and NOT understand that Christ is having John use CRYTPIC LANGUAGE which includes CRYPTIC NUMBERS of the 144,000 who are part of the Kingdom of Heaven when we read:

“Also she (the Heavenly City of Jerusalem in the New Heavens and the New Earth!!!) had a great and high wall with twelve gates, and twelve angels at the gates, and names written on them, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel:  three gates on the east, three gates on the north, three gates on the south, and three gates on the west.  Now the wall of the City had twelve foundations, and on them were the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.  And he who talked with me had a gold reed to measure the City, its gates, and its wall.   The city is laid out as a square; its length is as great as its breadth.  And he measured the City with the reed: twelve thousand furlongs.  Its length, breadth, and height are equal.  Then he measured its wall: one hundred and forty-four cubits, according to the measure of a man, that is, of an angel.” (Revelation 21:12-17)

Obviously in this description of Heavenly Jerusalem Christ is using the number 12 as a CRYPTIC NUMBER to convey who will be make up the City of God – NOT to give a LITERAL description of what the City of God in Heaven will look like!!!  In other words – the City of God being 12,000 furlongs is NOT by coincidence -- anymore than each tribe having 12,000 sealed is by coincidence either.  For again Christ used these CRYPTIC NUMBERS to paint a CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL PICTURE of who occupied Heaven – NOT to give a LITERAL description of what Heaven will look like other than it will be spectacular and beyond words as Christ REVEALED to Paul when Paul prophesied what the 3rd Heaven would be like and wrote this very brief description:

“But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love Him.   But God hath REVEALED them unto us by His Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.  For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him?  Even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God.” (1st Cor. 2:9-11)

CLEARLY – we will have to wait to see what Heaven really looks like.  But rest assured that what John was describing in his 7th vision was more about WHO will be in Heaven rather than a description of what the LITERAL CITY of Heavenly Jerusalem looks like.  For we read that the wall of “Heavenly Jerusalem” was 144,000 cubits – and clearly that is NOT a LITERAL number!!!  And suffice it to say that since this is CRYPTIC LANGUAGE -- that the 144,000 cubits again is NOT by coincidence either -- anymore than those “sealed” of Israel are meant to represent just 144,000 LITERAL people who will be in Heaven or even “sealed” by God to evangelize the whole World in the Future.  

For these are CRYPTIC NUMBERS that Christ ordained to signify the full measure of “the True Spiritual Israel of God” – which AGAIN is the 1/3 Remnant that Christ REVEALED to Zechariah that would be saved out of every Nation in the World to make up THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST that Christ Himself would bring through the tribulations of this World including today’s Great Tribulation when we read:

“And it shall come to pass in all the land,” (which refers to the WHOLE WORLD!!!) says the Lord, “That two-thirds in it shall be cut off and die, but one-third shall be left in it: I will bring the one-third through the fire, (and) will refine them as silver is refined, and test them as gold is tested.  They will call on My name, And I will answer them. I will say, ‘This is My people’; And each one will say, ‘The Lord is my God.’ ” (CLEARLY -- this 1/3 Remnant is also the 144,000 that John saw that Christ had “sealed” and saved out of the WHOLE Human Race and is now describing in his 7th vision!!!) (Zechariah 13:8-9)

The use of the number 12 in the awesome Book of Revelation illustrates that this number is CRYPTIC and has a hidden meaning that is NOT to be interpreted LITERALLY but as a SPIRITUAL TRUTH.  For whether Christ is speaking of the 12 Apostles -- or the 12 tribes – or the tree of life which bares 12 manner of fruit -- or the 12 gates – or the 12 pearls -- or the 12 foundations – He is referring to the 144,000 redeemed that He has saved out of this World.

CLEARLY -- this is Spiritual Language that illustrates “the fullness of” the ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST – NOT a description of a LITERAL 144,000 group of people of the Future who will only be of Jewish descent or part of “the Spirit Sons” of the Jehovah’s Witnesses!!!  For the number 12 in Scripture points to the Universal Congregation of God all throughout Scripture from Noah’s Day until today!!!  THINK ABOUT IT!!!

Christ is CLEARLY NOT having John describe the LITERAL CITY of Jerusalem in the Middle East in his 7th vision recorded in Revelation 21:12-17 either -- but the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem” where the 1/3 Remnant who Christ has saved out of this Human Race have always existed on Earth in our saved soul existence and will exist in after death on Earth in the New Heavens and the New Earth.   

And it just can’t be reiterated enough that Christ is painting a CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL PICTURE of the 144,000 who are in this Heavenly City.  For Christ REVEALED to John that it is made up of a SPIRITUAL WALL of all of us “Elect” who are IN CHRIST being also “the living stones” of the New Testament Temple of God.  In other words -- Christ’s True Gospel of the Kingdom of Heaven teaches that His Kingdom is a SPIRITUAL KINGDOM and that we True Prophets that He chose to save dwell in the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem” in our saved soul existence here on Earth waiting to be RAPTURED and delivered by Christ on the LAST DAY to the New Heavens and the New Earth in the Age to Come. 

And it goes without saying that Christ also REVEALED to John the very important TRUTH in his 7 visions that the False Prophets in League with Satan did NOT dwell in the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem” but in the SPIRITUAL CITY of Satan which Christ had John call “Babylon the Great.”  And make no mistake -- Christ REVEALED to John that it is the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Babylon the Great” here on Earth where 2/3 of the World’s unsaved population have existed in their unsaved soul existence waiting for the Final Day of Judgment.  And that this SPIRITUAL CITY of “Babylon the Great” will be brought to ruins before this Human Race is over and then cast into HELL on the LAST DAY!!!  

In other words -- Christ REVEALED to John that the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem” revealed in his 7th vision will be the Final Estate of the 144,000 redeemed on Earth – but NOT the Final Estate of the 2/3 unsaved whose Final Estate will be HELL and “outer darkness.”  The SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem” is also REVEALED in John’s 4th vision when we read:

“Then I looked, and behold, a Lamb standing on Mount Zion, and with Him one hundred and forty-four thousand, having His Father’s name written on their foreheads. (which only PROVES that Christ does the invisible marking of ALL mankind with either “THE MARK OF SALVATION” which is the Blood of the Lamb -- or “THE MARK OF THE BEAST” which is unsaved Man’s number of 666!!!)

John Reveals From Christ Who the 144,000 Are

There is no denying that John’s 2nd and 4th visions recorded in Revelation 7:1-4 and Revelation 14:1-5 REVEALS just who Christ teaches that the 144,000 are when we read in his 4th vision this extremely important description of the 144,000 redeemed who are “the first fruits” and that were “A great multitude which no one could number, of ALL Nations, tribes, peoples, and tongues, standing before the Throne and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, with palm branches in their hands . . . . and that “These are the ones who come out of the Great Tribulation, and washed their robes and made them white in the Blood of the Lamb.” (Revelation 7) This is what John saw in his 2nd vision but he goes on to record what Christ REVEALED to him in his 4th vision when we read:

“And I heard a voice from Heaven, like the voice of many waters, and like the voice of loud thunder.  And I heard the sound of harpists playing their harps.  They sang as it were a new song before the Throne, before the four living creatures, and the elders; and no one could learn that song except the hundred and forty-four thousand (144,000) who were redeemed from the Earth.  These are the ones who were not defiled with women, for they are virgins.  These are the ones who follow the Lamb wherever He goes.  These were redeemed from among men, being first fruits to God and to the Lamb.  And in their mouth was found no deceit, for they are without fault before the Throne of God.” (Revelation 14:1-5)

In these verses Christ is clearly REVEALING who these 144,000 represent in CRYPTIC LANGUAGE – that they are “the true first fruits” and part of THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST that He redeemed from the Earth and raised the souls of from Spiritual Death when He rose to Life after the Cross.  They are NOT 144,000 JEWS of the Future who will evangelize those “Left Behind” after the Rapture as Dispensationalists teach -- or “Spirit Sons” of “the Little Flock” as Jehovah Witnesses teach are the only ones going to Heaven!!! 

For CLEARLY -- they are those who Christ REVEALED to John that stand on Mount Zion with Him as “the Lamb who was slain” in payment for our sins.  And they are called “virgins” only because it signifies that all of us 144,000 redeemed have been clothed in the righteousness of Christ and are pure and Holy and “as white as snow” before the Lord – NOT that they are LITERAL virgins on Earth – but “blameless” and Holy in God’s eyes because of what HE HAS DONE in taking away our sins!!!  For John saw in both of his 2nd and 4th visions that ALL of us that Christ chose to save before the foundation of the world had the Father’s name written on our foreheads and that we were covered in the Blood of Christ and our sins had been cleansed making us pure and Holy before Him.  And John also KNEW that being forgiven of our sins meant being part of the New Covenant with the Spiritual Israel of God that has now fulfilled the 70th Week Prophecy of Daniel and represents the New Covenant made with “the many” of us recorded in Daniel 9:27!!!   

CLEARLY – in this 4th vision of John -- Christ is NOT REVEALING an Earthly Nation in the Middle East – HARDLY!!!  What He is REVEALING is the inhabitants of the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem” which is far superior than any City sitting on this sin-cursed Earth.  For no City on Earth other than the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem” is Holy in Christ’s eyes when we read that it is “the City of the Living God” both here on Earth and in Heaven.  And that Holy SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem” is where we 144,000 have always existed on Earth in our saved soul existence having been redeemed IN CHRIST when we read: 

“But you have come to Mount Zion and to the City of the Living God, the Heavenly Jerusalem, to an innumerable company of angels,  to the general assembly and Church of the firstborn who are registered in Heaven, to God the Judge of all, to the spirits of just men made perfect,  to Jesus the Mediator of the New Covenant, (which is recorded in Daniel 9:27!!!) and to the blood of sprinkling that speaks better things than that of Abel.” (Heb. 12:22-24)

CLEARLY -- The True Eschatology of Christ REVEALS that the LITERAL City of Jerusalem on Earth will be destroyed along with all of the other cities sitting on the unholy ground of this sin-cursed Earth when Christ Returns in all of His Glory.  THINK ABOUT IT!!!  That’s WHY it is clearly the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem” which is Christ’s Holy City and Nation of the Spiritual Israel of God that we are part of NOW if we are part of the 144,000 redeemed!!!

Christ has Broken Down the Middle Wall of Partition which Separated Jew and Gentile

And has Now Reconciled both Jews and Gentiles Together

into the One True Body of Christ which the 144,000 Represents!!!

It’s almost uncanny how today the Globalization of the World is such an important issue with so many of the Nations in the United Nations including our own here in the United States.  For that is also a very important Message of Christianity that so many overlook!!!  But unlike the Wall that most of us Conservative LAW ABIDING Christians want built along the Southern Border of the United States to keep illegal aliens and criminals out – Christ REVEALED to John in his 7th vision that the New Jerusalem in Heaven is made up of a WALL of Born-again Christians. 

In other words – John saw this WALL around the City of God in Heaven as a CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL PICTURE of “the Living Stones” of the New Testament Temple in the SPIRITUAL Kingdom of Heaven that represent the 144,000 that Christ has now redeemed and are part of THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST!!!  We see this in John’s description of the City of God in Heaven when we read about THE WALL in the New Jerusalem in Heaven:

“Also she (the Heavenly City of Jerusalem in the New Heavens and the New Earth!!!) had a great and high WALL with twelve gates, and twelve angels at the gates, and names written on them, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel:  three gates on the east, three gates on the north, three gates on the south, and three gates on the west.  Now the wall of the City had twelve foundations, and on them were the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.  And he who talked with me had a gold reed to measure the City, its gates, and its WALL.” (Revelation 21:12-14)

The Bible tells us that the 12 sons of Jacob were the progenitors of the 12 Tribes of Israel which represent the Old Testament Congregation of God.  And clearly – these 12 sons were NOT a coincidental number of births – HARDLY!!!  For this is another example of “a God ordained number” just like “the God ordained number of 144,000.  For we clearly see that the CRYPTIC NUMBER of 12 is passed on AFTER the Cross also as Christ had 12 Apostles which represented the New Testament Congregation of God.  So the CRYPTIC NUMBER of 12 is used on both sides of the Cross to represent the SPIRITUAL NUMBER of God’s Remnant “Elect” and True Eternal Universal Church on Earth.  And we also see this number 12 brought forth Gloriously in Revelation 21 – as John describes “The Bride of Christ” and the New Jerusalem that comes down from Heaven which is a CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL PICTURE of the 144,000 redeemed who exist in our saved soul existence in the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem” here on Earth after our death!!!

In other words -- the 12 gates of the City signify the entrance to the City of God which is the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem” both on Earth and in the New Heavens and the New Earth.  And one needs to understand that BOTH the Old Testament Congregation is represented as well as the New Testament Congregation which is another reason that Dispensationalism is NOT Christ’s True Gospel because it separates the Old Testament Nation of Israel from the New Testament Church – THINK ABOUT IT!!!  When clearly -- Christ REVEALED to John in this 7th vision that the names of the 12 Tribes of Israel were written on the 12 gates to the City -- while the names of the 12 Apostles were written on the 12 foundations of the City.  Which makes John’s 7th vision a CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL PICTURE of the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem” meant to convey that there is only ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST made up of both Old and New Testament Saints!!!       

And it is indeed sad that while Christ broke down the “Middle Wall” that separates Jews and Gentiles and the Old and New Testament Saints to finish building His True Eternal Universal Church on Earth at the Cross -- that Dispensationalists have today put that Wall back up again!!!  For clearly -- Dispensationalists behave as if the “Middle Wall” of separation was NEVER broken down by Christ but still exists today when they teach that there are TWO BODIES of Christ which are 1) The Nation of Israel – and 2) The New Testament Church!!!  And because they REFUSE to believe what Christ had Paul prophecy about this “Middle Wall” – that means that they AT WAR with Christ when His Word declares EXPLICITLY that there is only ONE New Covenant -- and one mediator of that New Covenant for THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST which is Christ Himself when we read:     

“For He Himself is our peace, who has made both one, and has broken down the Middle Wall of separation,  having abolished in His flesh the enmity, that is, the law of commandments contained in ordinances, so as to create in Himself one new man from the two, thus making peace, and that He might reconcile them both to God in ONE BODY through the cross, thereby putting to death the enmity.  And He came and preached peace to you who were afar off and to those who were near.  For through Him we both have access by one Spirit to the Father.” (Ephes. 2:14-18)

CLEARLY -- there is NO separate Covenant of Peace that a fictitious “ANTICHRIST” will make with the JEWS in the Nation of Israel in the Future that is SEPARATE from the New Covenant of Grace that Christ has ALREADY made with “the many” of us in His Book of Life which is prophesied in Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy and recorded in Daniel 9:27.  For there is ONLY ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST – NOT 2 – and only ONE NEW COVENANT OF GRACE that has saved us all which is the Covenant of Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy!!!  And Hebrews Chapters 8 – 9 and 12 make that abundantly clear if Professed Christians will receive THE TRUTH that Christ has NOW confirmed His New Covenant of Grace with “the many” of us in His Book of Life. 

Believing that Christ has 2 Bodies of people which are: 1) the Nation of Israel and – 2) the New Testament Church and 2 separate DIVINE PLANS of Salvation for each group as Dispensationalists teach -- is what has fueled the ever so popular False Eschatology of today which the Late Tim LaHaye based his extremely successful “Left Behind” series on.  But that Eschatology is NEVER going to be fulfilled because it is just NOT TRUE!!!

CLEARLY – the most important message of the Kingdom of Heaven that Christ taught was that He came to break down the Middle Wall of separation between the Jews and the Gentiles by first restoring a REMNANT of the Nation of Israel to God and then by bringing the Light of the Gospel of the Kingdom of Heaven to a REMNANT of the Gentiles in every Nation and Race on Earth and to reconcile both Jews and Gentiles together into THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST.  And that prophecy which is Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy has now been fulfilled!!!

And clearly -- THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST is now the Eternal Universal Church on Earth.  And this True Church of Christ is made up of those of us who exist in our saved soul existence in the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem” who are also part of the 144,000 that Christ REVEALED to John who had been “sealed” by Him!!!  Revelation 14:1-5 speaks of this 144,000 redeemed body of “Elect Chosen people” who are THE SONS OF GOD and the Spiritual Israel of God.  And we alone sing the new song that the False Prophets of Satan can NOT learn and sing.  For as Christ REVEALED to John – only the Chosen of God who are the ones Revelation says were redeemed from the Earth by the New Covenant Redeemer who is Christ -- can sing this New song of redemption!!!

And The New Covenant which takes away the sins of us 1/3 Remnant that Christ has saved out of this World -- is a prerequisite that is needed to enter the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem” either here on Earth while we are alive or to enter the Heavenly City of the New Jerusalem in the New Heavens and the New Earth when we die or are alive when Christ Returns soon to RAPTURE US!!!  THINK ABOUT IT!!!

Christ Revealed a Wall that Does Exist That Separates

The Saved Jews of the Spirit From the Unsaved Jews of the Flesh

CLEARLY – while Christ has broken down the Middle Wall that separates Jews and Gentiles of the Old and New Testament periods to form THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST – there is still a WALL that separates the saved from the unsaved.  For Christ clearly had John prophesy that the unsaved will NEVER enter Heaven’s Eternal Bliss either here on Earth or after one dies when we read:

“But there shall by no means enter it (referring to the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem”!!!) anything that defiles, or causes an abomination or a lie, but only those who are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life.” (for the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem either on Earth or in Heaven is an Eternal state of perfect Holiness into which NO ONE without a New Covenant of GRACE can enter!!!) (Revelation 21:27)

When John saw that the 144,000 were undefiled by women and were “virgins” that was again a CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL PICTURE using symbolic language to signify that these redeemed were “virgins” in the eyes of Christ who had NOT fornicated SPIRITUALLY with the Great Harlot who is the External Global Church of The Book of Revelation.  For it was the True Prophets of Christ that Christ REVEALED to John who made up the 144,000 in His True Eternal Universal Church who followed Him wherever He went and were virgins who were made Holy and Righteous and pure by the Blood of Christ.  And that includes those of us both on Earth and in Heaven – for when one is IN CHRIST on Earth – then one is IN HEAVEN ON EARTH!!!   

In other words -- it is the Eternal Universal Church of Christ who are the only “first fruits” unto God.  For Christ is called the first fruit from THE DEAD -- and we who are IN CHRIST are THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST and also the first fruits of this Human Race by being raised also from the dead IN HIM. Likewise -- only those redeemed by the Blood of the Lamb can be spoken of as having “no guile in our mouths” – for only those of us True Prophets of Christ in His Eternal Universal Church are without fault having a New Covenant Relationship with Christ which takes away our sins so that we are NOW without fault before Christ when Paul wrote from the Lord:

“There is therefore now NO condemnation to those who are IN CHRIST JESUS, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.  For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death. For what the law could not do in that it was weak through the flesh, God did by sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, on account of sin: He condemned sin in the flesh.” (Rom. 8:1-3)

All these things are spoken of about the 144,000 who are “sealed” which applies to THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST alone.  For NO ONE but those IN CHRIST qualify as the 144,000.  In other words -- ONLY those IN CHRIST can qualify as THE SONS OF GOD who are no longer condemned of our sins but are redeemed and “sealed” out of all the Earth by Christ Himself.  And that is WHY Christ had Paul write about those of us who had been redeemed and were now “blameless” before God waiting to be RAPTURED on the LAST DAY to the “Heavenly Jerusalem” in the New Heavens and the New Earth:

“I thank my God always concerning you for the Grace of God which was given to you by Christ Jesus, that you were enriched in everything by Him in all utterance and all knowledge, even as the testimony of Christ was confirmed in you, so that you come short in no gift, eagerly waiting for the revelation of our Lord Jesus Christ, who will also confirm you to the end, that you may be BLAMELESS in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. (which is the LAST DAY when Christ will RAPTURE us who are part of the 144,000 redeemed here on Earth!!!)  God is faithful, by whom you were called into the fellowship of His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.” (1st Cor. 1:4-9)

CLEARLY -- in order to be “blameless” we have to have been “sealed” and saved IN CHRIST!!!  And Christ is not divided but only has ONE TRUE BODY OF BELIEVERS that are IN HIM when we read:

“There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all ONE (BODY) in Christ Jesus.  And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise (of Eternal Life!!!). (Galatians 3:28-29)

HONESTLY – because Dispensationalism divides Christ’s ONE TRUE BODY into 2 Bodies – it is NOT the True Gospel of Christ which Christ helped me to realize many years ago now and I pray that I can help others realize through this Commentary.  For the 144,000 that are included in the redeemed from the Earth began with Noah and now includes the whole 1/3 Remnant that Christ has saved out of this sin-cursed world.  THINK ABOUT IT -- the 12 tribes of Israel are a synonym or CRYPTIC LANGUAGE used by Christ to represent THE SONS OF GOD who make up His True Eternal Universal Church starting with the Remnant of the 12 Tribes of Israel in the Old Testament Day and after the Cross includes the 12 Apostles in the New Testament Days which represent ALL of the True Prophets of Christ that have existed in His SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem” since the beginning of time.   

And CLEARLY -- redemption comes only by the Cross – which means that all those redeemed by Christ at the Cross are part of THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST that are now called “Christians” who are Christ’s Men and Women.  We Born-again CHRISTIANS have one head which is Christ.  And we make up the 144,000 that Christ REVEALED to John in his 2nd and 4th visions who are “the True SPIRITUAL Israel of God” that have been redeemed by Christ’s Death at the cross from all tribes or families on Earth as we read in John’s 7th vision:

“And he showed me a pure river of (the) water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding from the Throne of God and of the Lamb.  In the middle of its street, and on either side of the river, was the Tree of Life, which bore twelve fruits, each tree yielding its fruit every month.  The leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.  And there shall be no more curse, but the Throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it, and His servants shall serve Him.  They shall see His face, and His name shall be on their foreheads.  There shall be no night there: They need no lamp nor light of the sun, for the Lord God gives them light. And they shall reign forever and ever. (this is the redeemed 144,000 which represents THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST!!!)(Revelation 22:1-5)

Again -- these 144,000 with the name of God written on our foreheads represent the fullness of the SPIRITUAL Israel of God.  For it is only those of us IN CHRIST who can be counted as the True Spiritual Israel of God and part of the 144,000 that John saw redeemed out of the Earth in his 2 visions of the 144,000.  And clearly -- in order for there to be a “sealing” from “all the tribes of the Children of Israel” as we read in Revelation Chapter 7 – one has to understand from Christ that this is a SPIRITUAL TRUTH.   In other words -- if one has THE MIND OF CHRIST then they will understand that THE SPIRITUAL TRUTH of the 144,000 that Christ meant to convey-- is that it is the True Eternal Universal Church of Christ on Earth and in Heaven who represent ALL of THE SONS OF GOD since Noah until TODAY. 

In other words -- Christ REVEALED to Abraham that he would be the Father of Many Nations -- and clearly the 144,000 that Christ REVEALED to John represent those who are of “the seed of Abraham” who are also “the Chosen Elect” people of Christ from the MANY NATIONS of this World.  And if Christ has chosen to save us then we are part of “the special people” that Christ REVEALED to both Moses and Peter who would make up His Holy nation and would be a Kingdom of Priests and True Prophets that would be the branches of the ONE TRUE OLIVE TREE.  And this Olive Tree had branches of both Jews and Gentiles reconciled together into THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST.  For we are ALL part of the New Covenant with Israel IN CHRIST that fulfilled Daniel 9:27!!!

The 144,000  is “a God Ordained Number” Taken From the Root Numbers of 10 and 12  

CLEARLY – the Book of Hebrews tells us that the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem” is the Holy City of God which those who are “sealed” by Christ have come unto – NOT the LITERAL City of Jerusalem in the Middle East.  In other words -- this SPIRITUAL CITY is the Mount Zion that the New Covenant signifies – it is NOT LITERALLY 12 tribes with exactly 12,000 people in each tribe or 144,000 LITERAL PEOPLE -- but an innumerable company of the True Prophets of Christ who have been His messengers and Ambassadors of this World who have represented Him since the beginning of time!!!  

And we who are part of the 144,000 redeemed that John saw in Heaven are THE SONS OF GOD who are Jews and Greeks and Romans and Blacks and Whites and people of all Nationalities and Color and languages who have come out of all the Nations of the World that now make of THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST since the whole world has been totally evangelized today.

And it can’t be denied that the root numbers of 144,000 are quite obviously the numbers 10 and 12.  And that the number 10 and it’s multiples of 100 -- 1000 etc. are the CRYPTIC NUMBERS that represent “the fullness of whatever is in view” in Bible Prophecy.  This is demonstrated in the story of the 10 virgins -- or the 100 sheep with one going astray -- or the 1000 years being as one day – for once again they all signify “the fullness of whatever is in view.”  And clearly -- the number 12 is illustrative of the Congregation of the Lord as seen in the Old Testament 12 tribes of Israel -- or the New Testament 12 Apostles.  So from these SPIRITUAL TRUTHS we can surmise that 1000 times 12 is 12,000 which Christ is using to convey the fullness of THE SONS OF GOD who have been invisibly “sealed” by Christ Himself even before the foundation of the World in God’s Time to represent the Holy Nation of God.  And that Holy Nation is called “the Spiritual Israel of God” and is made up of the ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST which is “the God ordained number of 144,000”!!!  

 CLEARLY – what Christ was trying to convey with this CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL PICTURE of the 144,000 and the City of “Heavenly Jerusalem” -- is that 12,000 times each of the 12 tribes is 144,000.  And this represents the perfect measured “fullness” of the House of God which now includes people from all tribes and races and Nations in the ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST who have dwelled on the Earth since the beginning of time.  And since Christ’s Kingdom is a SPIRITUAL KINGDOM – that means that we dwell in our saved soul existence in the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem” while alive and after death will dwell in the New Heavens and the New Earth and the New City of Jerusalem FOREVER as Christ was REVEALING to John in this 7th vision!!!

In other words – the “absolute completeness” of the number 10 is 1000.  And Christ working with ONE complete symbolic Tribe of people all throughout Human History is therefore represented by the number 12,000 in Revelation 21:16 in describing who makes up the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem.”  And 12 tribes times 12,000 represents the 144,000 and THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST and the Completed House of Israel.  In other words -- 12 such tribes gives us the number of 144,000 which is “a God ordained number” of Christ’s perfectly complete True Eternal Universal Church on Earth whose names have been enrolled in Heaven as we read in Hebrews 12:23.  THINK ABOUT IT -- this is SPIRITUAL LANGUAGE meant to convey SPIRITUAL TRUTHS!!!  

Christ Only Has One  Holy Nation which is The Spiritual Israel of God

And it was Not Formed on May 14, 1948!!!

 

I know this Commentary has been over the top in length -- but I would be remiss if I didn’t mention WHEN Christ REVEALS that His Holy Nation was decreed by Him to be a Nation.  For HONESTLY – I’d like to have a Dollar for every time I’ve heard Dispensationalists misquote what Christ had Jeremiah prophesy about the True Spiritual Israel of God which John saw was made up of the 144,000 Redeemed and “sealed” in his 2 visions.  For Dispensationalists teach that The Nation of Israel in the Middle East became born-again and fulfilled most of Bible Prophecy on May 14, 1948.   When the True Spiritual Israel of God is the only True Nation of Christ that Christ has ever had -- and that Nation was actually decreed by Him to be a Nation before the foundation of the world – NOT on May 14, 1948!!! 

 

THINK ABOUT IT -- Christ was NOT talking about the Earthly Nation of Israel and the LITERAL CITY of Jerusalem in Daniel and Jeremiah’s Prophecies -- but the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem” and The Spiritual Israel of God” who are the 144,000 redeemed when we read:

 

“But this is the (New) Covenant that I will make with the House of Israel after those days, says the Lord (meaning after Christ “the Messiah the Prince” had come as prophesied by Daniel 9:24-27 to make His New Covenant of Grace with the Spiritual Israel of God!!!): I will put My law in their minds, and write it on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people. . . . . (And) “If those ordinances depart from before Me, says the Lord, then the seed of Israel (which is the Seed of Abraham and the Seed of Christ Himself!!!) shall also cease from being a Nation before Me forever.” (Jeremiah 31:33-36)

 

CLEARLY – Christ is NOT talking about the Nation of Israel in the Middle East today in those verses – for that Nation DID cease to exist until MAN DECREED that Israel was a Nation again on May 14, 1948 – NOT GOD!!!  In other words – until May 14, 1948 there was absolutely NO Earthly Nation of Israel anymore which was destroyed and scattered after 70 A.D. -- for that Nation was made up of “the unsaved Jews of the Flesh” and still is pretty much made up of “the unsaved Jews of the Flesh” TODAY!!!  So HONESTLY -- how could Christ’s prophecy given to Jeremiah and Daniel concerning His Holy Nation of the Spiritual Israel of God be referring to a MAN-ORDAINED Nation of the Middle East today which DID CEASE TO EXIST on this Earth for one thousand four hundred and forty-eight years until MAN decreed that it was a Nation again???!!! 

 

THINK ABOUT IT!!!  Salvation has NEVER been on a National basis – for NOT even in the Old Testament Days was the WHOLE Nation of Israel ever saved by Christ – so how could the Whole Nation of Israel today be “born again” as Dispensationalists insisted happened on May 14,1948???!!!

 

The City of God that Christ REVEALED to John in his 7th vision is made up of the redeemed 144,000 – and clearly that is the only True Holy Nation that Christ has ever had!!!  And this is the Spiritual Israel of God that Christ had Jeremiah and Daniel prophesy about that He would come as “the Messiah the Prince” to make His New Covenant of Grace with recorded in Daniel 9:27.  And that SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem” is where the 144,000 redeemed that Christ REVEALED to John in his 7 visions have existed in our saved soul existence here on Earth since the beginning of time!!! 

 

And it is this Holy Nation with its SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem” that has NEVER ceased to be Christ’s Holy Nation of the Redeemed 144,000 that are also called Israelites!!!  This is the Holy Nation that Christ Himself DECREED would be His Holy Nation even before creating the Human Race.  And it is made up of both Jews and Gentiles together after the Cross when Christ reconciled both Jews and Gentiles together into THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST. CLEARLY -- we 144,000 are “the Apple of Christ’s eye” that make up that Holy Nation – NOT “the unsaved Jews of the Flesh” in the Middle East!!!

The Gog and Magog War is

Man At War with Christ and His Word

and it is Taking Place Now Today as a Prelude to The Rapture at Christ’s 2nd Coming

 

According to Christ’s True Eschatology – the 2/3 Remnant who have NOT been saved will continue to be AT WAR with Christ and His Word until His 2ndComing.  And they are today being led by SATAN himself in the Final Rebellion that is causing a prophesied time of GREAT TRIBULATION for us 1/3 Remnant who are part of Christ’s Christian Army on Earth that are fighting this Final Battle of GOOD AND EVIL and TRUTH AND LIES right along with Christ.  And whether one agrees or disagrees -- Christ REVEALED to John that the Final Battle will NOT end until He sounds the Last 7th Trumpet to RAPTURE His “Elect” who are part of the 144,000 on the LAST DAY of this Present Age of Humanity. 

 

In other words -- until that LAST DAY of this Present Age of Humanity Christ REVEALED to John in his 7 visions that we True Prophets of Christ will be battling Satan’s False Prophets in this Final Spiritual Battle of GOOD AND EVIL and TRUTH AND LIES until His 2nd Coming!!!

 

HONESTLY -- there is nothing more sacred to the SEALED MIND OF CHRIST which those of us who are part of the 144,000 that Christ has chosen to save out of this sin-cursed world now have -- than THE TRUTH of His Word.  And CLEARLY – there is nothing more important to Christ than us True Prophets of His knowing His True Eschatology which is why He REVEALED to His Prophet Amos over 2700 years ago now:

 

Surely the Sovereign Lord does nothing without REVEALING His (DIVINE) Plan to His servants the (True) Prophets.”

(Amos 3:7-8)

 

The study of Eschatology is extremely important because it is the study of Christ’s Millennial Kingdom and His DIVINE PLAN concerning the last or Final Events of Human History.  But clearly – Christ’s True Eschatology cannot be fully understood unless one understands who the 144,000 are and what THE CAUSE OF CHRIST has ALWAYS been in His coming to this Earth which was:

 

To restore a REMNANT of the Nation of Israel to God and then to bring the Light of the Gospel Message of the Kingdom of Heaven to a REMNANT of Gentiles in ALL the Nations of the World by reconciling both Jews and Gentiles together into the ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST.

The Apostle John in his 7 visions of these End-Times was given a glimpse of the completed ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST that Christ came to Earth to save when Christ REVEALED to him the 144,000 standing before His Throne.  And in this Commentary I pray that I have given enough evidence that demands a verdict that the 1/3 Remnant alive today that Christ has saved are part of that 144,000 Redeemed that Christ has invisibly “sealed” with THE MARK OF SALVATION which is “The Blood of the Lamb.”  And that part of His DIVINE PLAN is to RAPTURE us on the LAST DAY at the sound of the 7th and Last Trumpet.  CLEARLY – Christ REVEALED to John who the 144,000 are that will make it to the END of this Great Tribulation when we read:

“Then I looked, and behold, a Lamb standing on Mount Zion, and with Him one hundred and forty-four thousand, having His Father’s name written on their foreheads (Revelation 14:1) . . . . . “These are the ones who come out of the Great Tribulation, and washed their robes and made them white in the Blood of the Lamb.” (Revelation 7:14) . . . . . . . . . These were redeemed from among men, being first fruits to God and to the Lamb.  And in their mouth was found no deceit, for they are without fault before the throne of God.” (Revelation 14:1-5)

There can be no doubt that the 1/3 Remnant who are living today in this 21st Century are Part of Christ’s “Elect” 144,000 that will be RAPTURED soon at His 2nd Coming on the LAST DAY -- for Christ only has ONE TRUE BODY OF BELIEVERS – NOT 2!!!  And when He Raptures that ONE TRUE BODY of His on the LAST DAY – THE HUMAN RACE WILL BE OVER!!!  But until Christ sounds the Last 7th Trumpet which could be any day now – just know that I will be forever standing up for THE TRUTH of His Word and His True Eschatology of these End-Times -- for I too am part of Christ’s 144,000 who have been redeemed that John saw in his 2 visions!!!
